Tom laments that complicated coffee table and tries to figure out what Scheana is so bent on sabotage.

Putting together that damn coffee table was way, way, WAAAY harder than it should have been!! I didn't even finish all the inside compartments and drawers until the next day! I've put together so many pieces of furniture from IKEA that were far more complicated with ease. Yesterday, I was in such disbelief over the difficulty of construction over this product that went back and checked my records and realized that this table was actually bought on some random website that Kristen found and bought when Googling coffee tables late night. So, my apologies to IKEA for blaming you. . .

With that being said, this coffee table had stickers labeling its parts with barely any adhesive left on them because they had been moved around so much. I should've stopped right there. . .But Kristen wants this coffee table put together, so I decided I'm not only going to have it done, but also have it done fast...

Talk about a FAIL. . .

When putting together this piece of s--- table, I would nearly get it completely assembled, only to realize I'm left holding a part that should have been put in the beginning! I'm not exaggerating when I say that I assembled and unassembled this table at least seven times! And for the record, I'm a guy who takes pride in the fact that I read directions, so don't even go there! This coffee table fiasco couldn't have come at a worse time especially when I'm trying to look like the reliable man in the relationship. Instead I was left looking incompetent and helpless, especially when Kristen had to step in to finish.
