Ikea Road Trip

After my husband officially broke his bureau into a pile o'sticks we decided to spend a little money we had left on a new bureau. We needed cheap but wanted something better than Walmart.

We settled on Ikea. I like this place. It is funky and cheap. The down side is it is UNASSEMBLED.

Please remember to take boxes 1 and 2 of your purchase. How hard can it be???? Well the parts were in a gallon sized bag and just thrown in a mishmash. No part 1 in a tiny bag, part 2 in a tiny bag....Just Good Luck printed in 12 languages and a 32 page book of directions with no words just drawings and arrows.

It boiled down to " Hey idiot put this in here and tighten the screw." So with the help of a 2 and 5 year old it was quit an adventure. When I finally left for work we had 6 drawers and the shell of the bureau was finally coming together.

I would do it again but I am not sure the Mr would. I will do almost anything to save a buck.

We hit Pizzeria Uno on the way home and I had a great new pizza-Brought it for dinner too as I could only eat about 1/3 of it. It has pesto sauce on a thin crust then topped with grilled chicken and a salad with calamata olives and a balsamic vinaigrette. Delish!!

Perhaps Pizzeria Uno would like to look at the website too...

The thing I remember about Ikea. walk, walk, walk, walk, food court, walk, walk, walk, walk, walk, pay, walk, walk, walk, collect merchandise. ;)

It was fun, actually, but we have not been back. I don't even recall what we bought, but I think it was shelving for our pantry. The assembly wasn't bad, or at least that what I remember.

Ah! Ikea! Words can't express it, so I've put it into song:
