    Ikea

    People say Linux is hard, but have they ever tried assembling furnitures from IKEA? I'm getting crazy! (*,)

    What's so hard about Ikea furniture??? It goes together in seconds. (And if it's the Gorm, falls apart just as quick)

    Re: Ikea

    It goes together easily enough... if it comes with the required hardware!

    My malm bed came with no screws, nuts etc. When I went to customer service to request it, they gave me the wrong hardware. It took over 5 hours to assemble the darn thing because of all the trips to (and linups at) the store.

    I really like the bed though.

    Re: Ikea

    i sort of like assembling ikea furniture; i should put an ad in the classifieds offering to assemble ikea furniture for a small price

    i can imagine how frustrating it would be if the necessary nuts/bolts/etc weren't included, though. fortunately, i've never had that happen to me.

    I assembled all the furniture in my apartment from Ikea. There were only a few mishaps: Ikea delivering the wrong mattress, one of the sets having a busted screw, and the knob on a glass sliding door coming off. It was also an opportunity to stock my toolbox (yes, I will need all of this stuff!), and in reattaching the knob to the glass door, I got to learn about epoxy. All in all, it was a good experience.

    It's very bad Feng Shui to have drawers under the bed.
