We went in to kill a little bit of time while waiting for FWSO who was at an event....

I came out -$275 later...

I got two bath towels, two hand towels, a stuffed fish pillow, two small DVD bookcases and one larger 5 shelf bookcase.

Just wait until you put those shelves together. Then you really will curse Ikea.

Sadly... this won't be my first ride at the Ikea put-together rodeo!!

We have several bookcases already from Ikea and most of my son's bedroom furniture too.

I think I need to stop buying books... at least I'm keeping the Swedes in business.

I've never had a problem putting together furniture from Ikea, but I have needed a hand. Thank goodness for my buddy Crescita . Without her I would not have had a couch or a bed.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Ikea sells little tool kits now, and some of their newer furniture doesn't include tools.

Caught me by surprise when I helped My Lady move her mom into a new place. Had to leave something in pieces until we could come back with tools.

Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

Ikea is a mans best friend. You get to play with your tools putting the shit together. And when you tire of the furniture you throw it away. They actually have started getting better built pieces. I purchased 2 bedroom sets for my mountain house and they are very sturdy. I also love the cafeteria. I'm not one for shopping, but the place has everything you need, all in one store. Gotta love shit like that......

The year after I graduated college, I lived 4 blocks from an Ikea. My roommate and I went like it was Target - and probably spent just as much money.

I did have an Ikea first though this year - the first time I've ever (seriously, ever) gone to Ikea and not bought something! It was because we were in Cairo and I only have a small carry on duffel bag to get home. Boyfriend had to practically pry a wooden step stool out of my hands and convince me that there was no way in hell it was going to fit in the overhead bin.

I've never had a problem putting together furniture from Ikea, but I have needed a hand. Thank goodness for my buddy Crescita . Without her I would not have had a couch or a bed.

My version of that bed has been passed along to my sister and I have to put it together again on Tuesday. It's been years. You might be getting a call if I can't remember how.

We should sticky a "How to assemble Ikea furniture" thread and make them an official sponsor of SI.

OMG yes!
When we moved into our house, I finally got my "library" area, in which one wall is wall-to-wall with the tall (5 or 6 shelf) bookshelves. There are also a couple of comfy chairs for reading/relaxing. Now, several years later, it is has gone from wall-to-wall, to wall-to-wall, in the hall, in the bedroom, in the garage, etc bookshelves.

DD is also a reader, so her room is similarly plastered from wall to wall with those darned Ikea shelves.

The first time I ever went to Ikea...was the one in Schaumburg, Illinois.....

After 3 hours in the store, they sent out a search party for me!

It was the funniest day of shopping I have ever had!

I mean, let's face it, a store with an escalator for you, and one for your shopping cart....how in the hell could you go wrong...
