I’m so excited about the newest additions to our home – a (real) TV stand and a dresser! Panda and I got a chance to put everything together today, so I feel super accomplished.

I came home from volunteering to find Panda starting to put together the TV stand.

We got it on Brookstone’s website because we had a Groupon to use.

The instructions were stapled on the right corner. Who does that??

Yay, new TV stand all done! Now the other table that came with our sofas can actually be used as a table.

Next up was the dresser we got at Target for like 40% off.

This was sooo heavy we just let the pieces slide as we opened the box.

Smokey was already impatient for her new playhouse, aka the drawers.

That’s a lot of screws and cams and whatnot.

As soon as we had the drawers made, Smokey made sure to test them out.

Soon enough, she was passed out in another drawer. Must mean they passed QC!

Things got a little confusing when we started adding the drawer glides.

We were getting close and Smokey decided she needed to try the support of the drawer from the underside.

Alright, dresser! It wasn’t until we put the drawers in that I realized one of them didn’t quite match… looks like I’ll be calling for a replacement piece.

We’ve designated one drawer for Smokey’s enjoyment and I finally get to move my underwear from a suitcase to a drawer!!
