The design was so f***ing stupid it still annoys me to think about it.
did she pay you?

Flat packed coffee table with one of those tops that lifts up to reveal a hidden storage compartment.



Assembled the body of the table no problem and then came the hinges, springs, runners and all that shite that I had to fit inside the compartment so the top could be attached. Took me ages to do and boiled my piss good and proper but got there eventually only to find the top lifted up and towards me rather than up and away from me as it should because I placed it in front of the sofa, so I had to disassemble it and redo the whole lot again.

Didn't occur to me until after I finished it a second time and was sat down admiring my handy work that I could have just turned the f***ing table round after the first assembly
