For Hannah’s birthday, we got a her a little kitchen. Every little kid needs one! We couldn’t wait to see her cooking up a storm in the playroom.
However, there was some serious work between the box arriving on our doorstep and the birthday girl having fun. From reading the online reviews, I knew assembly involved around 50 pieces, hundreds of screws and roughly two hours.
We have put together several IKEA items, but this was our most complicated assemblage yet. At the two hour mark, we had the bottom done.
The finished product took us almost 3 1/2 hours. We had a slight hang-up with some screw holes that were pre-drilled on the wrong side of the oven door, but in general I’m not sure what took us so long. Oh well, it’s done, and it’s really cute! Finished pictures coming.
This is why it is NOT a good idea to delay the assembly task until Christmas Eve after the kids are asleep…
3 1/2 hours isn’t too shabby! That thing was complicated.
