A couple of weeks ago while we were in Orlando, we visited IKEA. Earthgirl and I had fun roaming among the IKEA-designed showrooms upstairs, and then grabbing office and kitchen goodies downstairs. We never have really spent as long as we want in IKEA. We've been twice to the store in Atlanta and twice to the one here in central Florida, but always there is a schedule to keep. It's probably just as well - I'd probably try to redo the whole house if I had more time.
We picked up 3-slot document organizers; one in steel for me, and one painted white for her. It seemed like a good tool project for her, so we grabbed screwdrivers and sat in the middle of the floor reading directions. I use the term, "reading" lightly, because the directions were all pictures. They made me think of Science Geek's recent post. I wonder if she can interpret this one?
This was such a simple project - 6 screws, screw them part-way in, then come back when all are in place and tighten. Great practice.
Here are the finished products.
