Do you want to build a bookcase?

I just had to throw a little reference to Frozen in here somewhere =)

If you want to build a bookcase then I think you are nuts, because putting together this bookcase was so unbelievably stressful and difficult for me! Picture me lying on the floor throwing a mini temper tantrum on the verge of tears. Yeahhh I'm a treat.

Here's what happened:

The Better Home and Gardens 8 cube bookcase arrived in a huge box. I'm talking bigger then my 5'1" self and super super heavy. I cartwheeled it to the staircase and had to have help bringing it upstairs. My original plan to drag it up the stairs didn't pan out so well.

Once upstairs I pulled out all the pieces and got to work. The pain in the butt part was connecting all the pieces together. Once I would get two pieces together another one would pop apart. It was so frustrating!!!

Finally, I managed to get it to look like this...

and as of right now...this what it looks like!

I am looking for bins to put in here. The ones meant for it aren't in stock online or in any stores I can find. I can only find two or so on other websites and I want to grab eight. Even though I won't use all eight right now, I want to be able to put the same sort of bin in all of the cubbies. So now I'm on the lookout for things that will work. I will let you know as soon as I find something! =)

Hope you had a great weekend!
