"Little" Assembly Required : Magazine Organizer

Today while I was looking for two very SMALL things at Michael's, I came upon this magazine organizer that was on a super sale ($59.99 for $17.99).  I decided for $17.99 I had to get it, since I could use it at home or in my classroom.  I kept thinking the box was heavy for something so small but when I took the pieces out I realized it was definitely bigger than I anticipated.

I also realized that there were A LOT of pieces. The box claims "little assembly required" which I now know is a lie.  I started putting it together, and after about an hour and a half later. I was finished.

Then I realized that I forgot the two back pieces, so I had to take a side off, slide them in, and re-screw them in.

FINALLY I was finished.

I'm pretty happy with the final project.  I only wonder why the middle section is bigger than the other four compartments, but it is what it is (can you tell?). I followed the screw guides, so I don't think it's user error.
Either way, I'm now ready to load up on some magazines and get myself organized.

  1. Hello oh so organized Nautical Girl! You impress me with your ability to assemble things (first Harper's owl play yard now this)! I like that the middle is bigger, but you're right, it's a bit odd.
