I’ve realized that putting Ikea furniture together is only fun when it’s one piece of furniture per calendar year. Earlier this week my sister bought about 8 or 9 pieces of furniture from Ikea and I foolishly decided to help her put together a dresser. After a solid hour of work, the dresser was still not completed and I admitted defeat against Ikea.
I’ve had a change of heart–when I move out, I will not buy all of my furniture from Ikea because I simply do not have that kind of time, energy, or willpower on my hands. Sometimes it’s worth it to pay extra for furniture that is ready-to-use upon delivery instead of wide, nondescript boxes with instructions to insert Tab-A into Slot-B.
