There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.

Very funny, T. 

I'm envisioning Cougar finding the perfect spot for it, and arranging all her pretties inside.

Well ... I began after dinner.

1 - There is a massive amount of cardboard to be cut up, Styrofoam sheets to cut up, bits of cardboard, bits of Styrofoam, shreds of plastic, boards, etc. everywhere.  A chore for this weekend.
2 - Most comes assembled.  I got the legs attached.
3 - The lid is only partly attached as they failed to send 2 screws plus I need a power tool to get the existing 2 screws in well.  Until I get the lid well-attached, I run the risk of damaging the hinge if I use the lid so for now, I won't put rings, ear rings, and little things into the top section.  I'll see if I can get a screwdriver head on my power drill this weekend for the existing screws and order the missing screws from the company.
4 - The jewelry tree is now sitting on the top.  It won't be difficult to set this over on the vanity when I want to lift the lid.
5 - I loaded the side doors with the long necklaces.  Short necklaces are on the tree.  The bracelets are in the 2nd drawer.
6 - It's to be seen if the lower, larger drawers are good for undies and scarves.  Hopefully!
7 - The interiors are lined with a maroon velvet instead of sage, as in all the pictures.  I don't care.  But isn't it odd?
8 - I don't have the piece in the right place yet.  My bedroom isn't that large.  It has to be where is can be attached to the wall (with a strap so no tip overs) and have enough room on the sides to open the side doors.  If it has to sit where it is, I don't care.

When I get it finally put together and situated, I'll take a picture.  Meantime, I'm thrilled to have more storage.

P.S.  Instructions showed instructions for assembling the entire thing!  Thank goodness only the legs and lid had to be attached.

 :grin: I'm tired just hearing about it.   :-*
It sounds like once its 'up and running' you will be happy using it for a long time to come. 

A lovely addition to a lovely lady's boudoir.

Good grief, Cougar, it sounds like you're building a ship!  Perhaps you should have the Navy come and help you.  :)

Well, try to appear helpless.  Put away the power drill!
