  • The girls decided that they want to switch rooms around.

  • Which usually means lots of work for mom.

  • We gotta empty out some drawers

  • Now we gotta figure out where to put these things.

  • [Life in Japan theme song.]

  • Ok, what happened in here? Wait. Wait.

  • So we are going to move our 2 desks in there - Anna and mine. Sarah's desk is going to go right there... By my futon.

  • Oh, your desk is going to go back there? Because it won't open because of this.

  • Oh yeah. Then gonna push the bed a little bit more that way. Oh ok.

  • And then if we have enough space right there, we're gonna get another bunk bed. Yay, yay.

  • Oh another bunk bed will go here?! Whoa!

  • Oh my goodness! And come look at mommy's office. It's really empty.

  • Oh, is it coming along well? Yeah, look at that!

  • Oh my goodness! Where did everything go? It's in the hallway - for now.

  • [Sarah] Camera!

  • We're being called back over here.

  • This is where all the stuff was. 3, 2, 1...

  • Whoa! All organized and nice, huh? These are all the toys.

  • Very good!

  • And look! I can jump on the bed! Oh, we know that.

  • Ok, but I don't want it right now, honey.

  • I've just been offered all my son's money to buy him more Mario Lego pieces.

  • You're going to give mommy all your money, why?

  • Because so we can buy a lego Mario. So more lego Mario pieces, huh?

  • Are we done organizing our room tonight? Yep, yep.

  • What did we... what happened? We moved my bed.

  • You moved your bed? Um hum.

  • Whoa ho. Whoa!

  • Whoa! Where did everything go?

  • So, we are going to move these. And then, right there is Sarah's desk.

  • Then if you look in there, it's changed.

  • It's still a little bit of a mess but mommy got tired. Well, you still have more days to organize.

  • Wow! Oh that works out perfect, doesn't it? Right?

  • Living in a small space means you're always looking for ways to improve its use.

  • And if you're looking to do that, then you're bound to end up at ikea, or as you say in Japanese, IKEA.

  • We reorganized the kids' room, again, and now we need another bunk bed

  • because we're gonna take the kids off the floor, put them in bunk beds so that we have a little more space. So let's go shop!

  • Cause I think this $70 one's just a little too... Expensive.

  • Expensive, is that what you think?

  • What do you think? A good night? Well...

  • So we're gonna go with this one.

  • The HAFSLO. Single.

  • What is going on down here?

  • We got... Bunk beds, bunk beds.

  • We got this bunk bed, but this is the one we want, but with the bottom bunk.

  • Ohhh, yeah.

  • So, I came to pick up the mattress, and it looks like it...

  • It really is Nate!

  • That is crazy! The whole mattress is coiled up like that.

  • That's insane!

  • It's cool!

  • Well, the good news is we can take the mattress home today, huh?

  • That's insane!

  • What's insane? That's the whole mattress right there.

  • It came in.

  • It came in.

  • This is the joy of IKEA furniture.

  • The students studies.

  • I want this mesh thing to be right over there instead of over... yeah.

  • Page 13. Page 13 to start.

  • Even though over half of our house is furniture from Ikea that we put together, nothing had prepared us for the bunk bed we were about to construct.

  •  It will forever be etched in our minds as theThe Ikea BunkBed Nightmare.”

  • This has the worst design ever! Everything's unboxed. Holy cow!

  • We got this on sale but now we see why.

  • It is going to take some work to set up.

  • Anybody else out there ever bought IKEA furniture and put it together?

  • Lesson number one: never buy an Ikea bed that involves mesh.  It will only complicate every single screw you have to install.  

  • This is where Nitori is a million times better.

  • Cause, they put it together.

  • This is the worst instructions ever to mankind.

  • Lesson number two: never assume that an Ikea assembly will go smoothly just because you've done a bunch of them.

  •  Plan at least twice as much time as you think it should take, then double it.  

  • Well, how about the numbering system on this one? This one sucks, let me tell you what.

  • Whoever designed this bed at Ikea should be fired.

  • Lesson number three:  Keep calm and move forward.  Pain is temporary, but the gain is long term.  Don't say anything you'll regret later.

  • Let me tell you what, my sanity... I'm a little less sane right now.

  • I'm loosing brain power trying to do this thing.

  • So, we were trying to get this all screwed in and look, it doesn't line up! It doesn't line up!

  • Oh my goodness!

  • Holy...

  • So, wouldn't you know, we got it all set up, ready, and two of the boards on the bottom were switched around! We had to

  • We had to completely take it apart, put it back together again. My goodness.

  • If Ikea ever created a worst product, it doesn't exist.

  • My fingers are so freakin sore, nothing fits.

  • Now I have to put 50 million little screws in and screw it all into that!

  • With it together like this? Uh, yeah.

  • It took me 30 minutes to put this together.

  • Oh man!

  • We had to call in the reserves. Yes.

  • Well, put the mattresses on it and.. Yeah, but that is an interesting thing!

  • Here's the mattress! We couldn't believe this is the mattress.

  • Is it too wide? No, it is made for this.

  • Are you sure?

  • Here it goes! Wait Joshua, wait.

  • Joshua, let's watch this one.

  • Oh, because it's still in the plastic maybe? Oh yeah.

  • You have to cut the sections. I wonder if we wanted to have cut it first, huh? Watch out.

  • Let's watch! It's going to be awesome! Hi Luiza.

  • Our supervisors!

  • It's like opening champagne

  • They really don't want it to come undone, let me tell you what.

  • I don't know how to do this. So its not accidentally.

  • Yeah, this is definitely gonna be on purpose if it gets open.

  • Layers. Ohh its stretching. I think that might be the one.

  • Look, Joey, look!

  • Is this like what its like having a caesarean? Oh, it makes noise!

  • Oh my goodness. The springs are opening up!

  • It's kinda scary. Ahh.

  • Popcorn, popcorn!

  • Oh my goodness. We should have done it from the other side. Whoa!!

  • I hope its right side up.

  • I think ... it's upside down. I think it's the other way, isn't it? It's upside down.

  • Oh my goodness, well, that's about right. No matter what, it's going to do it always upside down.

  • And this is my bed.

  • It's a little nerve-wracking

  • AHHH!

  • You really do feel like you are getting shot!

  • It scared the poop out of me!

  • Hey, can you put it back in there. I want to do it again in slow motion. Yeah, right.

  • Oh man!

  • Ahhhh!

  • There's only 2 steps

  • Anna. You don't have to go very far at all, do you?

  • Huh? If there was a trundle bed, I could make it all the way up here.

  • You could almost just jump up there onto your new one, huh? Can you? No, I can jump to here.

  • Ohhhh, hows it feel? Is it comfy?

  • It's just so fun already. Oh, nice.

  • Look behind you! Oh my goodness!

  • Sarah, bara! What's going on Sarah?

  • Oh, are you just in heaven? You're not on the floor anymore, are you? Ohhh. Um Hum. Yeah, I'm in heaven.

  • Wow, Sarah. How nice! Finally.

  • Joshua. Is this where you sleep now? Yeah.

  • Oh my goodness!

  • And we can put our water and stuff right here. You have a place for your water?

  • That's good. But I'm going to go fill it up right now.

  • Good morning everybody! Good morning!

  • It's not my turn yet...

  • Oh my goodness, a little bit of Rummicube!

  • So, how were the new beds last night?

  • Really good. Wonderful!

  • Wonderful? I didn't even wake up.

  • I only "waked" up at five. Oh wow.

  • You didn't want to wake up?

  • She didn't wake up during the night.

  • I didn't woke up too. I didn't "wake" up.

  • Say "I didn't wake up too." I didn't wake up too.

  • This is my first time ever.

  • Sarah, yeah, you were on a new bed too. How was it?

  • Goo... Good? You're still waking up!

  • LATER THAT DAY...

  • I've just received word that the girlfriend has received more IKEA purchases

  • And they're coming this way now for me to unload. Let's go see what it is.

  • I'm kind of surprised you ordered something more from Ikea.

  • Well, they get ya! They have their showrooms.

  • What did you get?

  • A table and chairs for my little patio.

  • Nice!

  • You have pants on? Yeah.

  • On the hottest day of the year?!

  • I know!

  • So, should we put it right here like this?

  • No, it's too hard to see it

  • It can also be right here I think.

  • Yea, it could be right there actually.

  • Try to make it work.

  • It's the end of a saga, which is the assembly of this bed.

  • Had to go back to IKEA to get the piece that was no more.

  • There it is. Momentous occasion.

  • Nice!

  • The top goes on!

  • My goodness, that went in a long ways!

  • Oh, well now that's more like it, huh?

  • Yes, my secret haven.

  • How was this for construction?

  • For this one, I just had my brother come over and put it together for me.

  • I didn't touch it!

  • So that was our epic experience,

  • But obviously we really do like IKEA because we keep buying their products.

  • So please like and subscribe and continue watching us on Life in Japan.

  • You can buy this shirt at our store. Bye bye!

  • Yes Becster! Awesome. Way to go!

The girls decided that they want to switch rooms around.
