Yesterday I went to Ikea and fell in love.
Instead of following the yellow arrows up the stairs, I always immediately hit the “as is” section first. I’ve found a lot of cool stuff back there, and yesterday was no exception.
I found these 2 beauties:
Awesome! As much as orange, white and gray is kind-of a hot combination, I decided to buy the blue one. I really fought back my restraint in buying BOTH blues ones that were on sale. They are REALLY tall (80″). I don’t even know where I would put both of them.
But I decided to buy 1. It was only $35! What a great deal for a huge bookshelf!
The problem was, it was a floor model, so it was already put together.
Step 1: Deconstruct it!
This was very, very, VERY challenging.
Step 2: Carry it upstairs to my 2nd floor apartment piece by piece.
Step 3: Figure out how to put it back together again with out any instructions. Oddly enough, this step was a piece of cake!
I love it soooooooo much! All the hassle of taking it apart and putting it back together was totally worth the $15 savings (almost!!)
