You all know I'm still in the organization stage of getting my house together. I hate the clutter of papers/bills etc. so I decided last week to get a filing cabinet. Not just any filing cabinet--oh no! I had to order me a beautiful honeywood 4 drawer filing cabinet from Powell furniture. Anything else wouldn't have been my dream filing cabient. It was supposed to arrive yesterday (my day off) but didn't get here until today. I almost thought I wouldn't be seeing it until next week but fortunately my room mate was home and signed for it.

I just spent the last 4 hours building it--it's officially the most complicated thing I've ever built. Even harder than the IKEA bookshelves I got last month! With my power tools, I'm unbeatable when it comes to building any pre-packaged furniture. I can do it all by myself, just me and my tools! Even if the manual is in Spanish, I can tear into the box and have it done in less than an hour.

This one really stumped me though. It didn't help that I was watching the last four episodes of Beauty and the Geek while I was building it. I think that siphoned off some of my brain power. Maybe that's why I used the wrong screws for the backend and had to do it all over again.

Well, it's done now and looking absolutely beautiful!
