I'm sure it will. I have some pieces from IKEA that I bought 30 years ago, strictly because they were inexpensive but looked nice. I never in my wildest imagination thought I'd still have them after all this time. But in the intervening years, I got married and my wife likes them, so now I can never replace them. ;-)

A brace is a brace, wooden or otherwise. We needed some extra shelving for a reasonable price, and this seemed a better option than the unattractive metal stuff I was looking at from Target.

No instructions. It's a modular system (IVAR), so you mix and match the individual parts for whatever configuration you want. I added extra shelves and an extra crossbrace for stability. I've assembled a lot of IKEA products over the years, so it was no big deal. Apart from needing to use my cordless drill to install the braces, no tools were required, not even an Allen wrench.

I built this today. It came without any instructions (thanks, IKEA!).

Correcting the German translation of "ГОРОД ГЕРОЙ ЛЕНИНГРАД" on an East German-themed Instagram account, as you do.

I decided that another day of spring cleaning entitled me to dinner at the neighborhood deli.

So… it's been a couple of months since the v5 transition. Any ETA on when my blog will be fully restored?
