Have Y'all ever tackled an Ikea construction project? I know you have. So you know the feeling of accomplishment when the job is complete and looks (mostly) like what you had imagined when you bought it.

I work slowly on projects like these. I have learned over the years that, since I don't do these often, I need to take my time to avoid mistakes. So it sometimes takes me a bit longer than predicted to finish these. But the feeling is sweet nonetheless when I can step back and look at the finished work.

The 3 items I put together are:

  • A set of 14" shelves for the pantry
  • A set of 7" shelves for the pantry
  • A 5x5 Kalak storage piece destined for the closet in our bedroom (currently sitting in the middle of the guest bedroom where I put it together.
    • One thing I didn't consider was getting the Kalak piece from the room I used for construction to the room it is destined for. This is a big piece - 6' x 6' - and my fingers are crossed that it will fit through all the doorways it needs to to make that journey.
