Got oldest ds a new wardrobe. He doesn't have a closet in his room and he needed one with more storage. Also got a futon for the boys game room.

Any how get it home (dh helped me get it thank goodess) and I start to organize the pieces to put it together. It came in 4 flat packs. Find the instructions and a sheet of stickers. Stickers? Yes, I had to figure out which piece was and then mark it with a sticker. It didn't come with that already done. It also came with just picture instructions. No actual written instructions. Just pictures. I have never swore so much in all my life. Some of the pieces were exactly the same so counting the predrilled holes didn't help because you didn't know right or left I just had to figure that out. Which I did by the way. By the time I got to hanging the doors I was swearing so loudly at it and whoever happened to be near me (oldest ds poor kid) that dh heard me from outside. He came in and calmly told me to just go take a break. At this point I wanted to find a sledge hammer and smash the ** thing. So it took 6 hours for me to get it together and a big whopping 20 minutes for dh to hang the doors. He told me I was having problems hanging the doors because the instruction picture was wrong and I was using the wrong screws. How the heck was I supposed to know that?

It looks nice and there is lots of room and oldest ds loves it but I still want to smash it.

Then the futon. Just had to put the legs on. Oldest ds put that together I was done for the night.

Live, Love, Laugh...well, why not?
