I recently put together an IKEA kitchen (yes I said kitchen) with my brother-in-law… it was a MASSIVE job and it took us quite a while to do it.
I did learn a very valuable lesson… just follow the bloody instructions. Ikea has been making furniture for a long time and have sold millions of pieces of flat-pack furniture. Why is it that we think we know better when it comes to putting them together!
It took me a while but I realised that the only pieces of furniture that I had trouble putting together were the ones I questioned the instructions… so the next time you’re facing a pile of pieces… just follow the instructions and DON’T THINK.
Good luck with that 😛
