IKEA SNIGLAR assembly (is it hard?)

IKEA SNIGLARWe’re swapping out our changing table as the people who loaned us ours are popping out another kiddo,  so we picked up a SNIGLAR from someone who got two at a baby shower.

The SNIGLAR, if I’m not mistaken, may be the only IKEA piece of furniture without a “gotcha” point. That being where you’ve assembled it 99% and discover one integral piece is completely backwards.

There was no ambiguity to the instructions, no way to reverse-assemble a part (other than putting the shiny side the wrong way,) and the only thing I had any difficulty at all with was that there was a little cutting error that left a piece of sawdust that blocked smooth sliding and was removed by taking one of the screws and just flicking it out.

All in all it was the easiest IKEA assembly I’ve ever had, and took less than 20 minutes.

Seems sturdy, but have not had to use it yet, review it when I get a chance.

You can pick it up at IKEA for $35 or so, or some reseller on Amazon.
