I did this

What is all this, you may ask? Well, it is a set of drawers from Ikea. They were selling them for 39.99 on Monday. I thought they would sell out before we had a chance to go there. But at about 8:15 pm on Monday night, we went and picked a couple up. They still had some of each color, except white. We wanted white. So, we went with this black brown color. I like it. It's for Miaya's room.


This is the finished product. I felt very accomlished after having built this. I did it almost completely on my own. Having a office furniture installer as a husband didn't hurt either. :) He was very cool about it. He didn't hover, he didn't tell me I was doing anything wrong, he just let me figure it all out. And he helped me when I asked for it. It was great. :D If you want to feel good about building something, build an Ikea something. The instructions were all pictures, and pretty simple to understand. They even picture what tools to use. I had fun.

Good looking drawers. I wonder why tv shows make fun of Ikea instructions. If they are in pictures they can not be more simple. I just think it's men they do not like instructions of any kind.
Miaya looks lovely. She loves her photo taken I see.

I thought the bag was cigarett butts that you smoked all in a day (because the topic was look what I did) It looks GREAT!! I wish we had IKEA that was a special sale though right? (Just so I don't really hate the fact that we have no ikea.

Actually, to help get through the building process, Ikea DOES in fact give you a free bag o drugs. hahahaha. It is a confusing little bag, isn't it? I love how it turned out. And yes, this was a one day sale. They gave out tickets earlier in the day, and some people didn't use their tickets, so we were able to get some! yay!
