    Worst EVER furniture DIY !

    Here I am struggling for the past few hours to assemble a ~ 4 x 3ft Coffee Table... Bought from CDISCOUNT (first ever furniture order from them) and with one of the bun feet missing, I still decided to go ahead assembling the table.

    Absolute nightmare so far. Pretty useless instructions, 3 dozen different screws but no clue on which goes where and a curved top (suppose to be flat) - no wonder CDISCOUNT gave 50% discount.

    Well.. we could do without a 'bun' feet for a few days until they provide a replacement. Desperate effort to get the table ready.. poor decision

    surely it would be off kilter :?

    Brings back memories of a cupboard I put together - a bag of what seemed to be thirty different screws (had to measure each one against the instructions and build up a little pile of 'em), a pile of wooden bits that didn't bear any resemblance to the finished article and

    .. If I had to give one bit of advice, it's don't attempt anything like this, when the only screwdriver you've got is your Father's Phillips head, which has lost the threading due to about two hundred years of use. Painful - although liberal application of soap around the screws helped get 'em in.

    Ikea instructions are ace but me and my dad recently spent 9 solid hours (without breaks) building a couple of bookcases, a tv unit and some wall shelves.

    Never had any probs with Argos but IKEA instructions are probably the best.

    CDiscount doesnt seem to have learned lessons in spite of complaints.
