Young adult man reading instruction while assembling new trestle furniture in the morning at home

This is amazing and hilarious.  They always say if you want to see how strong your relationship is, build something from Ikea together. Ha!

Here are the details:

If you’ve ever built IKEA furniture, you know the self-assembly furniture chain’s savings can often come with a serious test of patience. Add in a significant other, and you’ve got a serious relationship test.
So are the savings worth it for couples? My team at FinanceBuzz wants to find out. Ahead of Valentine’s Day, we’re looking to pay a couple to build an entire bedroom set together and document their experience to show shoppers the true cost of IKEA furniture.
Our chosen DIY Duo will be:
  • Paid $1,000 for their efforts

  • Sent a $1,000 IKEA gift card to cover the cost of their shopping trip.
