Topic for my pride, here. :D

I just put together an IKEA sofa ALL BY MYSELF! God, it was a nightmare!
My body is aching with pain all over, I have bruises and my fingers are sore. I'm dripping with sweat and am near death from exhaustion.

Was going to put up some shelves as well, only to discover that the package only contained the shelves, and NOT the metal supports needed. http://www.trle-community.net/images/smiles/inquisitive.gif

WHAT THE ****? :hea:

What am I supposed to do with four wooden shelves and nothing to support them with?! GAAH! I HATE IKEA! http://www.trle-community.net/images/smiles/furious3.gif

I need a drink.

Not redoing it, just getting furniture... I've been living very minimalistic, but now I can finally afford more than a chair and a bed. :D
Got everything now. So I'm celebrating! :D Is starting to look cozy. :)

Colour scheme: Red, black and natural wood colours. :)

Damn shelf.

Well, there's a lesson to be learned from all of this: don't shop at IKEA anymore.

Have you ever tried Ikea hotdogs? Goodness me, it's so rubbery! You get the bit out the middle (which is foul anyway) and your teeth squeak against the rubbery skin that stays on! :eek: :p

I bought one IKEA furniture piece, and its the last I will ever buy. Its made just so, that you will only manage to put it together when your body has reached the maximum pain threshold. :mad:

Lying in a glamorous pose in my new sofa drinking (cheap) champagne now, and everything seems much more positive. http://www.trle-community.net/images/smiles/pleased.gif

I know. I'm scarred for life after putting a bed togheter! I have a scar on my wrist after that. :mad: Looks like I've tried to commit suicide.

I still remember the blisters after putting togheter that bed. About 53346 blisters inside your hands and fingers! http://www.trle-community.net/images/smiles/evil2.gif

Ikea is evil. They flat-pack absolutely everything so you have to put it together yourself and thier instructions are really hard to follow.

I once bought some metallic shelving from there and still have nightmares about the day I put it together.
