Ok...so I've bought a sideboard from habitat (memphis), it sitting in two boxes at home...now does anyone know how easy Habitat furniture is to put together? Do you think a kinda fit girl can do it herself? Would I just be easier paying £40 for someone to put it together?

What do ya think lol?

Course you can do it - just lay out all the pieces before you start, check everything is there and read the instructions thoroughly

Flat pack is easy, get a power tool and go for it!

You CAN do it - but ... me it can also be difficult without the right tools and reading those hopeless instructions!!
Yes it can be done like the others above me said - but if I had he choice - I would always get someone else to do it...

(Shouts Daaaaaady!!)

Well post up a pic of how fit u are and we'll judge it on that lol ;-)

Seriously though... flatpack is easy most of the time. Just remember to go mad with wood glue - spillage is easy to wipe clean but the more bonding made the better ! Usually the small sachets they supply in the package is never enough.

give it a try....just, as above, lay everything out on the floor, make sure everything is there, make sure you have the rght tools, read through ALL the instructions first, then re-read them and take things step by step....double check everything if you doubt yourself.

Also (from past experience) make sure you attach things the right way up (if there is a right way) as I ruined some furniture drilling things in the wrong place as I had it upside down the other year.....so learn from my mistake!!!!

and good luck :)

Nooooo! This is terrible! Once women can erect their own flat-packed furniture, we men will have no further function in life beyond getting rid of spiders.

Don't do it! Think of the consequences! :w00t:

£40!!!! no way - do it yourself.

Well thats easy for me to say I'm terrible at it - I get my girlfriend to build all of ours :oops:

surely a relative or neighbour will help for a couple of beers instead of 40 notes!
