In the Making
If you've been reading Gathered Heart for long, you probably know how much Christopher and I love IKEA (our newest obsession is their kid's line, of course.) This afternoon, I ran across something that made me fall in love with that sweet, sweet Swedish megastore even more: an entire YouTube series called In the Making, a how-to-build video guide for some of their most popular (or perhaps most confusing) products.
These how-to videos combine IKEA's classic step-by-step illustrated instructions with clips of people assembling the actual product. Need help putting together your new couch or hanging that fancy curtain track? Prop up your phone or iPad and follow along with happy little yellow-shirted IKEA assembly people as you work. Bonus points for the quirky soundtrack and little pop-up tips.
I have to admit, I'm a little obsessed. See more In the Making videos here
