More storage for the fabric hoard

Yesterday I went to Target and picked up this

On the outside of the box it was noted that it was a "team lift" item which means it weighs a freaking TON!  A very nice man loaded it in my basket and then another very nice man put it in my car.  Unfortunately, there is not a nice man at my house so I had to figure out how to get it out of the car and up the steps of the front porch.  I opened the lift gate on my Sportage slowly and let the box fall out against my hip.  Then I slid it down my legs until it was on the ground.  I zig zig inched it over the sidewalk and dropped it against the porch steps.  I pushed it from the bottom and then wrestled with it to get the box upright so that I could drop it into the house.  Since it was going to the 3rd floor, I knew I needed a better plan.  I opened the box in the middle of the living room floor and started pulling out boards.  I carried 2 boards at a time up two flights of steps until all the pieces were in the studio.  Then I put it myself...swearing intermittently.

I really need to convince one of my sons to move closer to his mother!
