Board: Black and Blue Thumb Awards

We've all had our little home improvement snafus, our fix-it gaffes--you know, the time you splattered paint on the floor, or short-circuited the house when all you wanted to do was change a light bulb. Tell us why you deserve The TOH Black-and-Blue Thumb Award this year!

If you're not interested in advertising your blunder on our boards, feel free to e-mail your story to us at diydisasters@thisoldhouse.com
