Photo of the day – 24 November 2017

There were lots (258 to be exact) of boxes delivered today, containing all of the bits of our IKEA kitchen. Our job on Saturday is to sort, make sure we have everything, and start assembly of those things that will be taking quartz countertops.

Thanks to friends who are seasoned IKEA kitchen builders, we took a few important steps;

1) Bring sharpies to clearly note what parts go for which cabinets

2) Bring 2 copies of the product list that IKEA gave you at the time of order. The product list you get on delivery is by item number, but the product list from your order is listed by cabinet.

3) Use the cabinet numbers to mark each box with which cabinet number it belongs to. When you write the number on the box, check the item off of your list.

4j Place the items approximately where the cabinets will go.

More photos to come of the grand sorting!
