I don't know if anyone else is the same, but we have a couple of things that we really would like to get out of the house for one reason or another but they're just so useful that they never get replaced and so they hang around like a bad smell.
Or in this case a large and fairly unattractive piece of furniture. Yes, it matches the kitchen and that's pretty ugly too!
First thing this morning, this classic Ikea item made the dangerous journey out of Dan's dressing room, down the stairs and into the garage. We've had it for many years and it is very useful, for years it kept our books and vinyl records off the floor, but it had to go. We have nothing to put the books on now so they're living in the wardrobe in the spare bedroom for the time being. We're not going shopping for a new bookcase, something will turn up eventually.
