Usually this ends up whipping me into a home makeover frenzy, with V being dragged along sadly with his tool box
Unfortunately, things never work out as they do in my head
So without further ado:
Antarian's Guide to Failing at Home Improvement!!
This year, I decided I was sick of the door to the walk-in wardrobe in our room, since you have to close it to even get to the clothes on one side. So we removed it
Step 1: Remove Door
Step Two: Use my genius
In one of our spare bedrooms, the door handle is falling off.
So in my genius state, I said to V "Rather than having to remove one door handle then put on the one from the wardrobe, lets just replace the door with the wardrobe one!!"
GENIUS USED - SUCCESS!!
Step Three: Replace door
This last step is easy. Close door and bask in my own excellence!!
This resulted in my alternating between hysterical laughter and yelling at the door for not growing and outlining its inadequacies as a means of closing off a room.
BUT THEN!!!! I forgot my final step:
Step Five: Use genius once again!!
Rather than immediately fix the door, I gave the excuse of "Let's just wait to see if the door settles into the frame before we see if it needs replacing.", and then one day, I realised that this home improvement tragedy is really a whole new means of entertainment for hours!!!
Take THAT Better Homes and Gardens!
