There are plenty of times where our klutziness costs us something dear to us. Hopefully it doesnâ€™t happen to you very often, but weâ€™ve all been there. The next time you break one of your favorite coffee mugs, or spill grease on your best dress shirt, take a look at this list and feel a little better about yourself.
Every single person on this list didnâ€™t think before they acted, and their actions caused millions of dollarsâ€™ worth of damage to rare and treasured objects.
Priceless work of art destroyed by amateur restorer
In 2012, a well-meaning woman took it upon herself to try and restore a fresco in the Santuario de Misericordia chapel located in Borja, Spain. The fresco had originally been painted by famous Spanish artist Elias Garcia Martinez in the 19th century, but hadnâ€™t aged well — the paint was peeling and cracking in large areas, and the only part of the painting that was still relatively untouched was Jesusâ€™ face. The elderly amateur took it upon herself to basically repaint the fresco, turning the masterpiece into a work that any 5-year-old could have accomplished.
