Free shelving and miss furniture

The ways of nature sure are mysterious, aren’t they? We don’t know why, but this small stretch of grass is known as the “IKEA graveyard.” When particle board reaches the end of its natural life, it is compelled to bring itself here to live out its final moments. This happens even if the owners weren’t done with the furniture yet, causing them to miss furniture.

Thanks, Ralph!

    Seems discriminatory to point out the marital status of discarded casework.

    I step off the train.
    I’m walking down your street again
    And past your lawn.
    When will those bookshelves all be gone?

    You’ve got all sizes there.
    Hope they’ll disappear somewhere,
    Some Sparky’s place,
    But here, they’re wasting space.

    And I miss you,
    But I won’t miss those bookshelves.

    There she is…

    Miss Furrrrrrrrrrrrniture!!

    (give her a hand, folks!)

    There she is, your IKEEEEEEEEEEEA!

    The dreams of a million shelves who are more than pretty, can come true in this sprawling city

    For she may turn out to be the Queen of Tacky!

    There she is, Miss Furniture!

    There she is, your IKEEEEEEEEEEEA!

    With so many beauties, she took the yard by storm

    With her all-shelvy form

    And there she is

    Lying in the yard, she is

    Fairest of the fair, she is

    There she is, Miss Furrrrrrrrrrrrrrrniturrrrrrrrrrrrre!!

    Apparently I missed the day in school when they taught us how to identify the gender of our furniture.

      MandaB…I think you identify the gender of furniture just like my dad did with puppies when we were young….you hold them up and look at the bottom of their feet…..

      …..now MY question is….in the photo, is that a male box or a female box?….(oops, I didn’t mean that like it came out….sorry…)

        A male box is called a “package”.

    Sparky needs to get a little shelf control.

    Where has all the shelving gone?
    It’s laying on the neighbor’s lawn.
    Was in a house but now it’s free.
    Standing ’round so uselessly.
    No more knickknack, no more book.
    Maybe kindling if not took.
    If you miss this furniture.
    You’ll be glad but I’m not sure.
    Come and take it, all or one.
    I’ve decided I want none.

    Goodbye, Industrial Shelving. Oh, don’t cry! You’ll rust so dreadfully.

    Goodbye, Old Stereo. I know it isn’t right, but I’m going to miss the way you spun those vinyl discs before you found out they’d become obsolete.

    Oh, Particle Board, I think I’m going to miss you most of all!

    I miss furniture. These tatami mats are nice and all, but this minimalist decor is hard on the knees.

    Sorry Sparky; I’m shelf-sufficient.

    I read that as a lesson in opportunity cost. If you get free shelving, you will miss the furniture.
