Cellardyke: 12 items of furniture in 11 hours

I’m exhausted. Yesterday was like some kind of Guinness Book of Records attempt to build as much Ikea furniture as we could. What a day! What with having twelve pieces of furniture to assemble (which we managed in about 11 hours), Jane accidentally stabbing me in the palm with a metal piece of bed frame, and my having dropped the fridge in the Currys car park, moments after we’d just bought it, it was at times a rather tense and stressful day.

However, we managed it, and this is what it looked like at about 11pm last night:

Kitchen with table and chairs
Kitchen with Forsby table and 6 Kaustby chairs

Main bedroom, with bed
Main bedroom with Malm bed … could make it the Malm bedroom, in that case

Wee bedroom bunks Wee bedroom wardrobe
Wee bedroom with Tordal bunk (£59!!) and £49 Aneboda wardrobe

Living room shelves
Magiker shelves in the living room

Perhaps the next time we visit we can even stay overnight. Guests welcome, of course… sign up here.
