Two complete nuts who are going on 74 and 72 doing this!!!!!
Before the wall unit can be built and installed, the existing IKEA, Bonde cabinets need to be moved into the Master Bedroom closet.
Easy! Well not really...
We unloaded one...put the stuff in the Senoia chest. That was smart. It may stay there.
We had to unload the clothes from the hanging shelves in the closet. We are doing one side at a time. Side one today and side two tomorrow.. Some sanity there! Some of the things from closet in temporary "quarters"!
The racks had to be made smaller to make room for the cabinets. MC realized his saw blade didn't do the job...oh gee....he had to go to Lowes for a new one!!!
PUSH CART .....move the emptied IKEA Bonde cabinet into the closet. That was easy.
We are putting the two Bonde cabinets from the Library on TOP of four that are already in there. Two on top of two!. But, before we put the ones from the Library on top of the four that are there, we have to remove a vertical one (that is positioned horizontally). It's the one with the two blue side panels. Check picture below. We will be positioning it in a different spot in the closet, vertically! Are you following me?
We tugged and tugged and somehow, I really don't know how, got it down. It ended up standing on the floor perfectly! PURE LUCK! We then slid it into it's new location.
Enter the Bonde cabinet from the Library. Somehow, we would "hoist" it up, onto the two existing ones. We finally figured out that the black marble pedestal that was a "table" would be the perfect height (on it's side). We moved the pedestal into the closet. With all the strength we could dig up, we got one end of the cabinet on the top of the pedestal and the other end leaning on the existing cabinets. I pushed, MC guided while on a 6 foot ladder!!!!
MC ended up standing on the cabinets to position the cabinet up on it's right side.
THE MAGIC HOIST!
