Hi. My name is Sean, and I'm an Ikeaholic

Hi, Sean.

Well. I guess it all started out the same as for anybody. You know. It’s just a little TV stand, no big deal, I can handle it. And this stuff really is versatile for small spaces, and very inexpensive. Pretty soon you’re putting up some of those simple metal shelf things for DVDs in the closet of the TV room. And they work great. So then you figure, why not put up some real shelves in the office? OK, so these are bigger and you have to take some measurements and you’re supposed to secure them to the wall in case of an earthquake, but it’s really not that complicated, lots of people do it, it’s not like that makes you a junkie or anything.

Then you wake up one morning and realize you just spent the entire weekend putting together a chest of drawers with eight frosted-glass fronted drawers on heavy duty roller slides that’s so heavy two people can barely move it and that’s when you realize that you are not in control of this thing, it is in control of you.
