All Of That In There? Yes, Really!

OK~ That desk is all in there? Yep, it sure is. I recently purchased a desk for myself and of course it came in this box.


My hubby's remarks were, "That whole desk is in there!" Ahhhh yes it was. I am not the hands on person in this house. I do know that a hammer, flat screw driver, drill, and other were all necessary tools when it comes to putting things like this together. But, when it comes to actually using them with the right screw, nail or whatever that thing a ma jig is called- let's just say that is not my thing!

Today I learned that are a gazillion screws that it takes to put a desk together like this. There are pan screws, flat head screws, short screws, long screws, black screws, brown screws....and the list goes on and on. For the life of me, I could not tell them apart. My job was to read the instructions and supply my hubby with what he needed to assemble this.

Only an hour into this project and look what I have!



I am thankful that I was able to read the instructions and somewhat find the correct parts. Most of all I am grateful that my hubby is able to put stuff together for me. Lord knows, a project like this would have taken me, myself, and I a whole 24 hours. Those pictures in that brochure seriously made NO sense to this Mom! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

*I purchased this desk. I did not receive any monetary compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's.
