How convenient it is for RK to get the keys to his new house right before the long Merdeka weekend! He has been packing and moving for a couple of days now but I’m only involved today. We moved some big items with the movers and some smaller items with his car.
The highlight of the day would be fixing up this Multifunctional Wardrobe (King Size) that he bought from Lazada. He bought this as a temporary storage solution before he’s ready to get the real deal when he wants to settle down. He has been eyeing on this budget wardrobe for a while and finally decided to just get it.
He thought it’s a good idea for me to help him assemble the DIY wardrobe! Honestly, I had zero expectation on the built-up of this makeshift wardrobe. When I unboxed the package, I was surprised to find crazy a lot of tiny parts. There were like 70 thin bars, 4 thick bars, 8 hooks, 40 assorted connectors, 12 meshes and 1 huge cover. Immediately, we were like, “This is like Lego. We should have asked the kids (his nephews and nieces) to do this.”
Thankfully, there was a user manual in English. The step-by-step illustrations were clear. The only issue was that we were physically and mentally exhausted after a day of moving (days for RK).
However, it’s generally easy to setup this wardrobe. For us, once we figured out the first level of the wardrobe, everything else was common sense. We just looked at the illustrations to ensure we’re building according to the design.
A few times, we didn’t put the connector at the right direction and had to dissemble that section but everything was good. No tools were required. Everything could be completed with strong bare hands, really. Just had to make sure we’re fixing the parts tight to ensure the sturdiest of a DIY wardrobe. Didn’t want the makeshift wardrobe to be crooked or slanted too.
RK hasn’t start putting clothes in there yet because the plastic smell of the meshes was quite strong. We don’t know how sturdy it is once we put clothes in but we’d see. So far, it’s very convenient for us to move it (empty) to wherever we want as we’re figuring out how to furnish his room.
There were a lot of additional meshes given. We’re guessing the product designer gave extra so that we can customize the wardrobe to our liking if necessary.
All in all, it was a fun session! We enjoyed working together as a team for this Lazada Multifunctional Wardrobe. I loved it that because he was more exhausted than me, I was more alert during the setup and had opportunities to be smarter than him #kiasu. LOL.
