Day 2 of Rachael's room

Well Day 2 of the Great British Room Makeover saw a trip to Warrington to visit Ikea there for the bits that were out of stock in Ashton.  Rachael was still in need of a chest of drawers, a mirror and some pink storage boxes.  It didn't open until 11am so I spent the morning making up the drawer and cupboard units for the storage unit from yesterday.  They were very easy to do and look really smart.  They have a high gloss finish to them that I suspect will need polishing every day or two but it's Rachael's room so that is her job!  As you can see the cardboard box was removed!
 

When I came back I assembled her book case which was picked up yesterday.  It was dead easy to put together and is very sturdy.  It comes with a strap to attach it to the wall but we are going to wait until Rachael has got her new bed to see if she is happy with where all the furniture is.


Then it was the turn of the back of her desk.  The white board on the right is magnetic which may be useful to her.  At least she can fill it with fridge magnets!


And finally, the chest of drawers.  It weighs an absolute TON!  I have no idea how I managed to lift it into the car.  Whilst I was getting it off the shelf in the store, I was aware of a man standing watching me.  When I had finished struggling with this huge box he said 'I waited to see if you needed a hand.'  I smiled sweetly at him - what was going through my mind CANNOT be repeated on this blog!  Not sure why he didn't just come and grab one end for me. Perhaps he wanted me to drop it on my foot :)


I have finished Santa but will post a picture tomorrow.
