Arts and crafts

This afternoon Jon and I (and Lenny) put together this wonderful adorable chest of drawers. My Mom bought this for us for Christmas, and it has been sitting in the corner of our bedroom since. We were nice and motivated, fresh from doing a load of laundry and a load of dishes, and we decided to embark on an adventure. This delightful chest of drawers came from, of course, Ikea, and matches our other chest of drawers and wardrobe. Everything from Ikea is god-awfully heavy and comes in about 4 thousand peices. The nice folks at Ikea do supply super-simple, word-free instructions and several mini tools to put it all together.

Here is pretty much what comes out of the box.

Here is Jon, awash in partially constructed peices.

Lenny was also very willing to help.

Finally, we got it all together! We're quite pleased with ourselves!

And the finished product!!!!

((I know, what a long post about one peice of furniture! Just wait till I have a kid some day!! Haha!))
