Accidentally Disabled Admin Account

I was trying to create a different account with Administrator access and accidentally disabled the Admin access on my original User, I now have no users with any admin access. I effed up bad.

Anyway to get around this other than just reinstalling the OS? Thanks.

Go into Safe Mode, enable built-in administrator account, reboot and log into administrator account, and then assign administrative privileges to the other account as desired.
