“I can do that!” is almost every DIY-er’s thought when it comes to home improvement, repair or maintenance. You think of all those movies where people who have never held a paint brush in their lives just dance around the the house and the result is a room that came out of IKEA catalogue. You feel so inspired you’re ready to risk everything and do it yourself. You might be lucky enough not to injure yourself and , at the same time, create a “masterpiece” or you could just end up with a nasty injury or a wall painted in a colour that is suspiciously close to a certain nuance of brown. The moral is that you sometimes have to leave it to a pro. There are certain actions only specially trained people like handymen are skilled enough to perform. In case you have decided to do the job yourself, here are some things that might happen.

Let me state the obvious and say you have to first imagine it and then do the shopping. But is it really that easy? The problem appears after you have decorated the living room and it’s not what you had in mind. The situation resembles a decoration disaster because the cushions don’t match anything or the sofa is so big it takes almost all of the space in the living room.
Remember the Jumanji movie where the kids flooded the house? That is probably the best that could happen if you try to do the plumbing yourself. Except the humongous water supply bill you will receive in the end of the month mishandling such a task will destroy not only the curtains and carpets, but also the electrical system.
