One Hundred Million Ba-zillion Pieces...

















One hundred million ba-zillion pieces plus one little "helper" later - I have some new cabinets...






Ta-Da! I can't fill them up though until DH bolts everything against the wall for safety. My son is 3 years old now - which translates to - everything takes 3 times longer than it should! Ha, ha - we did have a good time putting this together though - he is a real pro when it comes to the screw driver. I would just put the screw in a little bit for him and then he would have fun twisting it while I very quickly would try to do at least 3 other screws with the other screwdriver. And so sad - the directions said not to use a power screwdriver - sigh.

Anyway - this cabinet is in my office/sewing room. New cabinets should come in helpful in my quest for organization. And that bottom cabinet has a locking compartment - always a good thing when a toddler is around. And if anyone is interested - that is Bella perched up on top - a left over from my teddy bear making days...

nice - I am so scared to tackle those "assembly required" furnishings... Is that an IKEA hutch? (I like the shelves on top, cabinets on bottom look.) Electric screw driver probably would have broken the pressed wood.

Very nice cabinet! You will love filling it! Can hardly wait to see it stacked with fabric, quilt books or finished quilts.

Seems like lots of us quilters used to make teddy bears in a "former life".

Always a pleasure to see pictures of your not so little guy. What a sweet smile!

Show us what your cabinet, shelving unit looks like when you get it all loaded?

What a great smile your little helper has -- he's proud of himself! I'm admiring his special PJ's!

Oh Bela is adorable, but not as adorable of Little Boy with his screwdriver! He looks like he is having the time of his life!

its so good that you engage little boy in the assembly. He'll appreciate the skills he picks up and the ability to think through construction later in life!
