Ikea furniture HELL

We broke the wardrobe already!
Piece of SH!T!!! AGGHHHHH! I was crying last night and yes, Collin and I fought a little. But seriously, how the hell is anyone supposed to build this damn thing??? They didn't make half enough screw locations to support it's weight... so when we had the frame of the wardrobe built, and tried to lift it up to the wall, we heard a splitting of wood sound and immediately stopped lifting... I don't think we actually BROKE it, we just pulled out their cheap method of securing the wood peices together. So now, Collin and I have decided to MacGyver the thing to hell, and drill holes through it to secure these huge heavy side peices to the frame... otherwise I see this damn thing falling on top of me one day... not my idea of a good time, that's for sure!

If my Dad was here... he would have known what to do! I miss having my Dad to help me with such tasks! (I live a 3 hour drive from my parents... at times like this I hate the distance!)

PS... Ikea furniture is crap! LOL

Man, that sucks so badly with the furniture!!
Once you reinforce the bugger, I'm sure you and Collin will look back on the situation and laugh!!

Actually, my crying was half laughing... but with all the tension in the room, I had to look upset.

But seriously, trying to build a wardrobe in such a tiny room as my bedroom is a challenge! One I am not so sure we'll manage on our own!!!

LOL Jess I'm laughing so hard right now because that's the EXACT thing that happened when Ken and I built our entertainment unit. When we stood it up pieces were cracking under their own weight until we got the rest of it together. It was BRUTAL. After 3 moves we eventually threw that piece of shit in garbage. Everytime we had to take it apart and put it back together something new broke until it looked like hell.

Having Dad 3 hours away... try 15 hours away. Poo.
