    Some Ikea stuff is quite good...
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    but will be coming back this weekend and I'll take photos more of the scenery on the way there for you guys!
    My advice- if you buy IKEA make sure you glue in addition to just screwing together- it will hold better

    Depends what it is though--some stuff you could ruin that way...
    And make sure it fits together first as well...

    based from my experience,

    I wont be buying wood or any furnitures with wood. 1. my dog chews the heck out of it, 2. It just doesnt last nowadays due to being not hardwood. So I have decided to get only the furnitures that has a metal frame, or made of metal.

    Well even things you assemble--if you glue ti together incorrectly--or if you are missing a part--or if you might need to take it apart--then gluing is not such a great idea.

    I can't find a video--but there was an old cartoon about a metal eating dog...

    Yes I am. but im moving in tomorrow. I just have to sign the lease and pay the bond. after that it's mine. or for the next 12 months. LOL.

    Thats why I have to take off from work early today as Ikea doesnt do scheduled deliveries. they only do next day deliveries.

    I have a few coming in tomorrow (ref, washing machine, etc.) I just need to buy a bed frame and a mattress, and a few other things and have it delivered tomorrow.

    I'll take pictures later on my way so you can see the rest of Australia that's not on the internet. LOL
