Of course, I have had prior experience helping assemble the crib mom purchased for brother which we twice assembled. (Once at his apartment and once at mom's house.) Both times the instructions were ridiculous to follow. Seriously! Whoever writes instructions for assembly must speak a different language called Confus-ish. It's like trying to follow a joke told by someone who doesn't remember how to get to the punch line. Then there are the pictures you're supposed to follow. In big letters on each page it says "Models may vary". What the heck is the point of looking at the picture if it's of a different model?! The finally frustration comes with the use of the allen wrench. I know it's supposed to be a simple tool that anyone can use and they even include it in the hardware, it's just a pain in the butt! Anyway... we really only made one boo boo that we had to disassemble and reassemble when we had the mattress frame on upside down. Luckily that was noticed right away so we weren't too far into that step. But we assembled the crib and it looks lovely in the room.

Our next project will be to sand and stain the dresser we found on craigslist this past weekend! Also coming up this weekend, a tour of the maternity/delivery unit at Swedish. It's getting closer!
