Ikea and Blackwalt discuss As-is

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 August 2007

As mentioned in my blog yesterday I finished setting up Rolly's new bed.

It turned out to have a fairly noticeable crack in one of the ends. We had purchase As-is and final sale saving $150 bucks. But choose the bed marked "packaging" and checked carefully the content of the damaged box.

By Coxxorz - Posted on 19 August 2007

See? I'm not the only one
