I hate DIY!

I went to the hardware store today because I wamted to hang up my hand mirror. The guy gave me a knock off version of command strips. They looked simple emough. Just stick one side to the wall and the other to the mirror. Well i followed the instructions but when I tried to take the morror off to use it. Like he said I should be able to do. It clean ripped the strips off the wall stripping the paint several layers down off the wall with it! I am so angry right now !馃槧馃槧馃槧 . Ive had to put a pictute over it for now. But at some point im going to have to put a layer or two of filler on the wall just so I can make it level enough to put more paint on. Then im going to have to repaint the wall!! .馃槧馃槧馃槧.
I am like you. I absolutely hate do-it-yourself projects. Hate putting things together. I can, but I just hate it. I'm sorry for what happened. Great to see you on here again.
I hate the cheap versions of command strips.
I've had the same thing happen to me.馃

@Penny true
Don't ever trust the guy at the hardware store... a few know their stuff, but mostly they know just enough to help you make a hole in the wall.
Well, you've learned a valuable lesson on what not to buy in the future.... 馃

Those strips never work in real life despite their price and advertising.
