A DIY project as simple as painting a wall can still prove tricky.
Take it from Jillian Smart, a DIY amateur who made a hilarious mistake while painting.
In a video that has been viewed over 4 million times, Smart set out to give her dining room a fresh coat of paint.
She started by masking off the crown molding and then used a roller to paint her room a grey-beige paint.
Throughout the video, Smart can be seen dancing and it looked like she was having fun painting.
Until she noticed a big mistake.
In the video, Smart wrote, “God I thought I looked so cool…”
“President of Idiot-Ville.”
It turns out that Smart had taped the top of her walls and not the paneling as she intended.
When she removed the tape, she had a long strip of paint missing from her walls.
Smart added at the end of her video, “Leave a compliment in the comments, I need it.”
While Smart probably didn’t find her mistake all that funny, people in the comments section laughed at her.
One wrote: “There’s you’ve never painted before but seen it on TV.”
Smart clapped back, “What’s worse, I DID paint. A LOT OF. I have no excuse!”
Another commented, “Omg girl I almost spit out coffee.”
Someone else left a comment with a cheeky spin on Smart’s name, adding, “Jillian not-so Smart.”
“Sometimes our brain just works backwards,” read a fourth comment.
Another added: “LOL I’M SO SORRY BUT THAT WAS SO FUNNY.”
In other DIY mistakes, a man tried to cheaply redo his carpets with Dylon, but instead completely ruined them.
Also, one woman shared a hilarious eBay fail when it turned out her new bathroom mirror was “for a Barbie house.”
