As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

D.I.Y.

Over 18 months ago I purchased two sets of flat pack drawers, I put one to immediate use building it all by myself, but having no urgent use for the second set I left it until recently, when James spending increasingly more time at mine needed somewhere to keep his bits.

James lovingly put it together with the help of the blonde kid cussing me all the time for not putting it together sooner.....

Guess which one keeps falling to pieces?? Its not the one that's been together for nearly 2 years that's for sure....

Who said men are better at D.I.Y.?

the problem with flatpack furniture is that all those joints and bolts and so on need time to "bed in" after it's all put together, and of course if you've left it flatpacked all this time it hasn't had chance to "breathe" or acclimatise itself to the humidity of your home... so you see, it's all your fault, actually.

ALWAYS the fault of the tools, ALWAYS. I've had a spice rack sitting on my kitchen worktop for two years. After a brief interlude where Steve smashed four unuseable holes into the walls, it's never been anywhere close to being put up.

its because james isn't wearing goggles - safety first! and the drawers know it!

Thank you parabolichobo!

I blame a mixture of crap tools and the fact there wasn't even enough wood glue included to glue two matchsticks together, let alone half a set of draws!
