Builder B

My mom got me and Russ under the bed drawers as a house warming gift.  When she came and visited and saw how messy under our bed was, I think she couldn't help herself.  Either way, I love them!


I thought I would be tough and build them myself!  When I took the pieces out and looked at the directions, I was completely puzzled!  I was just about ready to give up all hope when I realized that there were two drawers! It totally explained all the extra pieces I couldn't figure out what to do with!  When I realized it, I shouted "OMG! LIFE CHANGING!" haha Russ thought this was a little dramatic, but seriously?!  How was I supposed to know there were two drawers?  There was only one in the picture!

Anyways, I got it all done and it looks great and matches perfectly! Thanks mom!

As I was writing this, Russ said "oh no Im gonna look like the a**hole that didn't help you build those."  I love how this blog holds people accountable :)

BTW as a side note- anyone who has their settings so that if they comment you can't reply to them should change that.  If you comment on my blog and I don't respond, it is because you have a "no-reply" feature set up.  I only mention this because I didn't want people to think I don't care enough to reply.  I always feel bad not replying to your comments.  OK...tangent over. Thanks!

They look perfect! I'm glad! It's hard to tell when you order online. Way to go putting them together. That is a HUGE first for you. You made your Momma proud!

Hmmm, I need to learn more about this no reply feature! Is that why I can't ever reply directly to blog comments? I'm always doing the @blabla @blehbleh

Sweet drawers, girl!

@brooklyn, probably! I just know that when you comment I can't just reply to you in email like I do with a lot of people. replying in email is just easier so i dont always come onto my own blog and comment back

Nice job, Ms. Builder! The drawers look great.

I know what you mean about the no-reply thing. I always feel so terrible when I can't respond to someone!

i'm seriously impressed- i usually get super frustrated when I build things and end up hurting myself somehow. and YES with the no-reply thing!! I might have to post a reference to this, too!
