Ok, maybe not fluent Swedish, but I did manage to decipher the instruction manual from Ikea and assemble my patio furniture!
My inner domestic goddess is doing back flips...
(50 Shades of Grey anyone???)
|The porch still needs some livening-up, but at least people can tell there are inhabitants in the house.|
|This picture on the instruction manual almost scared me off... |
I don't want to look sad and lumpy with cracked furniture!
|But actually, I ended up feeling more like the guy on the right (and I didn't even call Ikea)!|
I do have one small confession. When I went outside to enjoy my glass of ice cold lemonade- because that's what you do in the south- I realized I put the back of one of the chairs on backwards. Whoops. I didn't panic, I just pulled out my trusty wrench-screwdriver-tool-thingy and whipped that chair into shape! Grace was very impressed.
Next step: flowers, seat cushions and maybe a RED front door.
