Yesterday....

I got myself sorted to put together this....
all pre cut, holes drilled, it just fits together...right???? NOT!! I am no cabinet maker but this has proved to be a challenge......not helped by the fact that I put a shelf in back to front and had to pull it apart and try again!! 
I started in this nice orderly way...everything is numbered......took me a little while to realise that!!!

Showing my skills..or lack there of!!! Lol!!

Is dark now......had to bring out the sustenance to keep going.....this was the putting the frame together before I realised I had a shelf the wrong way around and so had to undo it all again!! Would d you believe it not long after this photo I knocked over the beer!!! 

This is where I am at this morning.....have to get the electric drill as I just can't screw the back on by myself....best get back to it.....
onwards and upwards.....
Have a good one.

I remember putting together a shelving unit one time, using a butter knife and those little garden snips [in place of a screwdriver and pliers, lol!]. I hate assembling things, lol! Looks like you're doing well though!
