And then there are the Saturday nights spent assembling furniture.
After several weeks of online perusing, I decided to order this Hemnes chest from Ikea. It was only $150, plus $50 for shipping.
So, I laid out the pieces and texted good ol' Adam to see what he was up to.
Here's a look at the finished product. I like it so much, I'm not sure I will be able to keep it tucked away in the closet, which was my original intent.
Woot! Woot! When I started the project around 7 p.m., I posted this on Facebook: Ikea dresser assembly: to be filed under "wow, I'm really proud of myself" or "gee, that was a stupid idea"?
I got some very funny comments, but I'm tickled to say the answer was definitely the former! Big shout-out to Adam for helping me out and to my cute neighbor Cyrus for bringing down a beer in the home stretch.
