Several months ago, when we got our tax refund, we decided to spend part of it on Myra's Big Girl bed. She wasn't (or we weren't!) ready for it then, but we decided last weekend that perhaps the time was ripe. So, Mitch hauled out all the boxes to assemble it, and found that the headboard was cracked. Grrr. A check of Ikea's website had no mention of this particular bed (besides, how long ago did I throw away that receipt??), so we decided to fix it ourselves rather than make the long drive to Austin to see about an exchange or something. We're resourceful that way. Anyway, it meant waiting another week as glue dried and cured. So, yesterday we were ready! Until about halfway through the assembly when we realized that we were missing the support slats that are packaged separately from the beds. Grrr, again. Should we try for a fix ourselves, or was it time to make the drive south?
