FHE-the dresser that love built
For FHE Monday Fred and I put together our dressers we purchased at IKEA this past weekend.
IKEA is our new favorite store. If you haven't been there get there but plan for at least 2-3 hours once inside. We go crazy in there! With such low prices you can actually afford stuff!
When we began with our project, my first thought was 'oh good, my husband is super handy therefore he'll whip these out and I can sit and watch some good tv. awesome!' I was completely wrong. Fred is very much a team player. So we built them together.
It was actually more fun than I thought it would be--and easier!
It took us two hours to put two dressers together. We did things backward a couple times but were able to repair all mistakes. Unfortunately you could tell that by the second one we were both getting tired, so Fred's dresser wasn't put together with quite as much TLC as mine was.
We love them! Plus it's so nice to actually be able to put clothes somewhere! Fred is excited because I've been telling him that as soon as I got a dresser I would be able to put all my clothes away.
Now that we have them up and I've started putting clothes away--I have found tons of clothes that I don't wear and ones that I've had to ask myself if I'll ever wear that skirt I bought in New York in 2003 again. the answer was probably not. so off it went. (TV is such a great learning tool! I learned this one from Clean Sweap)
Fred will be happy to know that in an answer to his plea--I gave a huge bag of clothes to my little sister. Whether or not you can actually tell is another question.
