The chair in Jacob's bedroom collapsed, beyond repair. So he borrowed one from the dining room. But we needed the dining room chair when friends came for dinner so we took it back and instead he took the chair from the study. Needing to work on the computer, I then took a chair from the kitchen. It was obvious that our little game of musical chairs couldn't continue so I took a trip to the local DIY store and invested in a new study chair.
As these things invariably do, it came as a flat pack, but I am one of those weird people who actually enjoys putting together self assembly furniture. I like the challenge of interpreting the badly translated instructions ("can't use hammer" was a good one... I can, watch me!)
Making sure all the components are there and following the instructions step by step... I failed on the first one that said work on a carpet because we don't have carpets downstairs. I wasn't going to carry the finished item around the house.
Nearly there... (note to self... must clean that floor)
Ta Dah! My finished chair. After all, when you're writing a blog post every day you do need a comfy chair. Although between you and me, I'm currently sat up in bed with my laptop waiting for it to be light enough to walk the dog!
