IKEA makes it pretty easy to put together their imported particle board furniture. You open the box, find the instructions, grab the tiny wrench, and go to town. Three hours and several beers later, you're done. Until you realize that the bookcase defies gravity, or that table legs generally don't point upward. It's a common struggle, and while some of us would never think to share our shame, some people love posting their IKEA fails online.

They're probably not supposed to come all the way through.

But it's much easier to slide around the room.

8. Just a little bit off.

She's laughing because she meant to buy it in beige.

9. Things don't line up.

10. Full tilt boogie.

Some shelves just don't want to be shelves.

11. This might be art.
