We have all been there after a break up or a particularly motivational episode of Love it or List it. Crowbar in hand and a few loose tiles later, your very own fountain has sprung in the middle of your kitchen.

Personal touches paint the story of a home’s inhabitants. These days it’s hard to resist the siren song of DIY magazines and lifestyle mavens like Rachel Ray. Whether it’s maintenance or some inspired remodeling we are seduced by their promise of simple, cost-effective hacks. But beware: we’ve all known a friend who has had to live on her couch indefinitely because the DIY renovation has devolved into an endless nightmare.
