Tips for Building Flat-Pack Furniture

Shaynna Blaze helps you assemble that tricky flat-pack furniture.

Flat pack furniture is becoming more stylish than ever, and is a great way to get a "new designer" look.

The best part? You can do much of the labour yourself. If you can wield a screwdriver - you can assemble flat-pack furniture!

Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. When you open the box, make sure you have everything you need! Lay out everything so you can see it and make sure nothing is missing.
  2. Get rid of the packaging to avoid cluttering your work space.
  3. Follow the instructions! Don't stray from the suggestions or skip any steps. 
  4. Don't tighten screws until the end - this will make it easy to take things apart if you start to go wrong.
  5. To increase sturdiness, use multipurpose wood glue on the joints. Extra tip: Make sure you have the construction right before you do this!
