I'll run through a few photos that will give you some idea of these changes.
While this one looks very undramatic it represents perhaps the biggest change...
A new entertainment center complete with a 40 inch widescreen TV (this was the
largest screen my livingroom could cope with).
What's the good of a new TV unless you can watch in comfort???
this baby provides the ultimate in comfort for two... wanna come visit???
A couple of views of the now completed wardrobe, the assembly project of my
recent IKEA purchases created quite a bit of interest, I will address the queries now;
Yes I did read the assembly instructions, or more correctly I studied the assembly
illustrations, IKEA have a unique (in my experience anyway) method of instruction,
they rely entirely on illustrations... there are NO written words to explain what
goes with what, nor are similar pieces identified with A, B, C, stickers... its up to
you to sort them out correctly.
Having said that, I found the assembly process pretty simple and in all aspects bar
one I am happy with the results, the single flaw in the IKEA style of furniture is in
my opinion the weight and therefore the difficulty in relocation of finished pieces.
As I said though I am very pleased with both the set of drawers and the wardrobe, I
especially like the hanging rail extensions that protrude from either side giving a
handy place to hang a jacket, dressing gown, or the next days clothes.
The post title "Furniture Everywhere" may have confused some of you;
Let me illustrate how it came to be, my old entertainment unit and TV is
currently residing in the hallway!!!
My old pair of wardrobes has taken up duty in the spare bedroom while the displaced
pair await their fate in the wings, so to speak.
A general reshuffle of lounge furniture brought on by the inclusion of the new
two- seater unit has seen an old couch become a temporary resident of the dining room.
Another casualty is the old set of drawers from my bedroom, currently residing in the
Sun/Junk room along with quite a few other misfits, so until the next big garage sale
the house is sort of overflowing with bits and pieces!!!!
