Ikea

22 May

I love Ikea, I am that weirdo that genuinely likes putting Ikea furniture together so buying something from Ikea is fun for me, not just because of getting new furniture but because I get to build it! πŸ™‚

I got a gift card for Ikea a couple of years ago for Christmas. It was initially going to be used to buy a new dresser but the one I wanted got discontinued and I didn’t want to use the gift card on just anything so I waited, and waited…and waited some more! Until eventually there was something else I wanted aaaand it was on sale lol Lucky for me Ikea has been having a sale, all bed frames 15% off which meant that after the gift card was used my out of pocket cost for the bed frame was not quite forty dollars, oh, and that is including the chocolate bar I bought lol

Patience is a good thing my friends! πŸ˜‰

I broke the first rule of the Ikea instructions, it showed a picture of a person by themselves and had that crossed out (like a no sign), then they showed a picture of two people with a check mark, they seemed to think it would take two people to build this piece of furniture, silly Ikea. Its like Ikea doesn’t realize that having someone help you build the furniture isn’t always an option *rolls eyes*

It took dare I say, some ingenuity, on my part, plus some muscles, to get the frame put together – serves me right, buying a metal bed frame lol but in the end the sweat was totally worth it. The bed frame went together perfectly, it looks great and I’m super happy with my purchase.

The cat however is traumatized from the disruption to his routine by my building the bed frame – oh, and he doesn’t seem too sure about how high the bed is now either lol.

Voila! My new bed! πŸ™‚

And yes, that is an Eeyore on the side, don’t judge, he’s cute and he is a comfy pillow. πŸ˜›

The next time you are at Ikea, if you see this chocolate bar you should grab one, it was yummy. It is milk chocolate with hazelnuts in it, can’t go wrong there! For the possible Weight Watcher in you, half the bar is 7 points (in the Points Plus Program) which some people might think is ridiculous but hey, good chocolate is always worth it. πŸ˜‰

One final thought, I feel putting furniture together should count as exercise, by the time I was done I was sweating, it was gross. πŸ˜›
