IKEA... "But I don't have a buddy with a pencil..."

The third piece of furniture that I bought at IKEA is the one I was most excited about! I went into IKEA looking for something that I can keep sweaters and clothing in... I wan't sure if it would fit in the bedroom or have to go in the kitchen... I found a great piece that is narrow and tall enough to fit in the bedroom - Hoorah!

...When I opened the directions booklet... I saw the following:

...I have a carpet to work on ...but I don't have a buddy with a pencil to help me build! Uh oh.

I don't want to end up being the sad guy.

Not sure if the job would just be a bit more difficult... or if I would need four hands for the building... I decided to go ahead and see how far I could get with it...

After two hours of building...

and building...

and building...


I even made the drawers with handles... and they roll along wheels and all. 
I was feeling pr-etty proud... and pr-etty fancy!

I'm really happy with the piece. I've already stocked it with sweaters and things. Each time I walk into the bedroom, I feel happy about it.   : )
