New York City meets Munich

Oak, pine and handful of Norsemen

September 9th, 2011 · No Comments · Funny, Shopping

Today I went back to Ikea, this time for some dressers and a desk. This was my fourth furniture purchase from the Munich Ikea since we got here. The good news is that two more visits and my rewards card will be full, and I get a free Billy!

Loyalty has its rewards!

It’s tricky to refurnish an entire apartment on a tight budget, and Ikea offers good function for value without being too hideous to look at. Now if only it assembled itself.

While I’m putting together a couple of Malms and such, I’ll leave you with a bit of Ikea humor. No reason you shouldn’t have some fun while I break my back and hands.

Lead nuclei not included.

The nails are for the feet, that’s why there are four.

Three beer maximum for any one piece of Ikea furniture.


Fun trivia: Those special Ikea fasteners are called “knock down” style fasteners. Which is exactly what tends to happen to Ikea furniture after a couple of years.
