Total DIY Fails from Classic Television

created at: 02/01/2011

Admit it: mistakes can be funny…especially when they’re someone else’s.

We’ve all had our moments of DIY failure. I have. From the contact paper stencil that I melted with spray-paint just last month to the time my parents were out of town for the weekend and my sister and I decided to spruce up their bathroom.

We were 17 and 14 respectively. Yeah. Imagine how that might have gone…

I’ve had plenty of epic fails. (The more you try, the more you learn, right?) To make you (and me) feel better, I’ve rounded up three of my favorite TV DIY fails for your enjoyment.

3. Every Episode of Home Improvement

2. Lucy and Viv put in a shower (The Lucy Show)

1. A Shirt Story (The Cosby Show)

(All-time favorite! “It’s tucked into my socks!”)

Now there…feel better? Got a favorite TV DIY fail to share? Post it in the comments below!
