In case you missed it: Last year, everyone’s favorite Swedish flat pack palace IKEA purchased TaskRabbit—a major player in the “gig economy” that connects people who are willing to exchange money for small tasks. You know, things like cleaning around the house, filling test tube shots with vodka (that’s a real task) or, you know… assembling IKEA furniture.

Now that their partnership is in full force, TaskRabbit conveniently offers flat-rate pricing for assembling IKEA’s flat-pack furniture (you can see prices here).

2. BRIMNES Storage Beds (and here’s the one with the storage headboard)
