The Furniture!

As mentioned in the last post, we’ve spent some of the money on new furniture – namely a new ottoman for the front room, and a complete load of Bedroom Furniture, yes, complete with capital letters!

The stuff replaced in the bedroom is as follows:

1 Bed – CheapISH pine bed replaced with a Solid Mango-Wood bed!
   Bed

2 Bedside Cabinets – Office drawers replaced with 2 Oak bedside cabinets with three draws a piece.

2 Chests of Drawers – Solid pine.
   Drawers

1 Four door Wardrobe – Again, solid pine.
   Wardrobe

Total cost for the bedroom has been around £1,200 – cheap when you consider all we’ve got for it…

Flat Pack

(Yes, in BOLD) In bold because it was EPIC. The wardrobe came in three massive boxes and the draws in a box per set, epic self assembly was not mentioned on the website, yet it was the case – FIVE hours for two of us to put together the wardrobe! NONE of the parts were labelled – all guesswork 🙁 BUT it is one hell of a piece of furniture now fully built and filled with our clothes.

The Drawers, in comparison were a piece of piss – only (sic) two hours per set!

Anyhow… now for the Bed. The Bed had only just been delivered today, and is still in two massive and monstrously heavy boxes! The plan is to leave it boxed until the weekend, when, on Saturday I’m going to take a saw to the old bed and get rid of it in lumps (I’m not even going to entertain the idea of trying to take it apart normally!); once the old bed has been disposed of, we’ll unpack and build the new one. I’m thinking the whole task will take around two hours – fingers crossed!
