Anyway, as well as the dining table (which has already hosted a few fantastic meals with friends), I managed to persuade The Farmer we needed this.

And I was right. We did need it. Those board games desperately needed somewhere to live.
The problem with Ikea furniture is putting it together. I think that before getting married, a couple should be locked in a room with a flat packed Ikea wardrobe, a cordless drill with a slightly flat battery and those wordless Ikea intructions. If they come out in four hours still talking to each other and with something resembling a piece of furniture, they are good to go.
|Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200, Do Not Call Ikea|
After quite a few years of marriage, The Farmer and I assemble Ikea furniture like pros. This time Farmboy even helped, although we did have to confiscate the cordless drill.
On our, arguably not necessary, side board I have two of my favourite items.
My mother in law gave The Farmchildren these owl tea light holders.
I love them because they are super cute and if I am feeling a bit cross, I just turn them around.
