This a reworking of a piece I wrote a few years back following a trip to Ikea. Hardly anyone read it then, so second time lucky – hopefully!
Gosh, this is heavy. A few steps more, through the door, round the corner and drop it to the floor. Hey, that sounds like a poem!
Right, off with the packaging and I’m ready to go!
This looks simple. Twenty assorted screws, one allen key, ten bits of wood and in minutes I’ll have a Billy bookcase!
Now, this one here, that one there. No, that one there, this one here. Ah, that goes…err…no …grrrrr!
Look, I’ve done it! Yea! Now to stand it upright. Heeeeve-ho. Wow, look at that!
Oh, it’s upside down.
I think I need a coffee break.
- Did you know, the Billy bookcase is Ikea’s biggest selling item with over 60 million sold worldwide – two of which are in my apartment!
Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Penny Gadd for the photo.
Prod the frog to join in the fun!
