    It was you who built a wardrobe on your lonesome, after your mate broke your first one to bits wasn't it? lol (I cant find the thread)
    Anyway, what I wanted to know is, are they hard to put up? I have got mine coming tomorrow and I certainly dont have the foggiest clue how to put one together.
    Its got 4 drawers and is a double; my old man (meaning my dad), well, I know for a fact that he wont have a clue what he's doing, so looks as though Im going to have to try and fix it up myself.
    Knowing my luck I will put the door on the wrong way or something, or end up having back to front drawers (anything is possible with me).
    If I happen to fix it together wrong, it's not going to the skip is it? because I cant afford to folk out another £100....

    Does that look easy to fit together?

    For some reason, it looks totally naff in that photo. My bloody decore in my room better do it some justice. It's got a weird "second hand" look about it, eeew! I can assure you, it's brand new though! Not like you give a crap, but I wanted to add that to my statement. x

    Twas £145 from argos. I have a sneaky feeling that it wont fit in my bedroom, ooops- probably should have taken some measurements first, now that I have a cozy double bed,, eeeeeeeeee! All excited.
    Anyway, I doubt i'll be able to put the knob on the drawers, let alone put the whole thing together. :dohh:Im a bit thick like that ya see.

    Steph, would u like to come round and fit it up for me? It arrived this morning, and OMG I simply havent got a clue. Instructions are there to help you, but instead it confused me more. It doesnt matter what angle I hold them at, they make absolutely no sense, I may aswel look at it upside down because regardless, it's all jargon to me.
    It says things like 'drill hole 15cm on the right..................." 'use drill to.............' 'drill a hole through.......'....
    I mean CMON, since when did you need to drill your own holes? lol.
    Forget it- I'll ask babies dad to do it; I dont trust anyone else with my wardrobe at the moment. Dont want to do a 'you' ;) and have my precious cupboards land in the skip lol.
    Bless ya. Ere, have u spoken to her since?
