While in Portland earlier this month, we made the trek to IKEA. While I didn’t have a list of things I needed, I knew I would walk out with at least a few items that would be handy, decorative, or just plain fun.
My friend showed me a 3-tiered rolling cart that she already had two of in her house, and today they were marked down to a mere $25.00. I bit. Why not? I was certain I would find just the right place for this great organizational tool.
Today was unpack & assemble day.
It’s you and me, rolling cart…I can do this. I will not be intimidated.
Slowly, I unpacked all 21 metal pieces and small bag of nuts, bolts and screws. I found the Phillips screwdriver I would need, and I set in to conquer the project.
Step 1: (These are my words, as IKEA directions are strictly pictorial) Take the 4 long pole things, and slide smaller opening end of one tube into slightly larger opening end of another tube. Repeat.
Taking said tube in one hand, I proceed to slide the smaller opening into the other tube.
Taking the other two tubes in hand, I follow the same procedure.
Not butter. Not even close. Small opening definitely not fitting into slightly bigger opening. Not even close.
Just my luck.
Fingers crossed my husband has the remedy we need.
