Remember how one of my 2012 Home Goals was to buy a new entertainment center?
Well, I did it! Kind of…
(Name that movie!)
It’s bad. I know.
The boxes, cabinet, and bricks were there to block the puppy from chewing on the drywall. The puppy pen is there to block the puppy from chewing on the boxes. Sigh.
A few weeks ago I went to IKEA to buy fabric for my headboard…but the lady 2 carts in front of me ended up buying the entire bolt of fabric I wanted. Ugh! Luckily the trip wasn’t a complete bust because I ended up finding my new entertainment center.
BUT I couldn’t buy all the pieces because they were too long to fit in my car, so I only bought the TV stand part. I need my boyfriend and his truck to get the side bookcases and the bridge piece.
Oh, you didn’t think that was the end of the story did you? If you saw my facebook post from that day you know better!
Long story short: We got the TV stand put together and then realized 2 of the pieces were backwards…which meant we put nail holes in some of the front pieces! Yes, nail holes in my brand-new $225 TV stand.
I cried. And swore like a sailor.
I eventually calmed down and noticed that the nail holes weren’t really noticeable from the couch. So I can sit on the couch watching TV without noticing the nail holes and filling with rage. Hooray! I'm going to try filling them with white putty. Hopefully that will help even more!
Today’s Lesson: Make sure your IKEA furniture is correctly built before nailing the back piece on!
