1 some assembly required
my closet was a big junk pile of magazines so i ordered a bookshelf that arrived yesterday. it came in pieces and was somewhat daunting. a friend of mine had once lusted after a "computer tower." he finally bought it, brought it home, and spent an entire weekend assembling it with a battery-less dremel tool and a pink speckled hammer. by the end of it, he hated the thing. it became the point at which everything in his life went downhill. was haunted by that as i spent the evening taping together faux wood strips and trying to determine which was the "unfoiled" side. in the end, it came together lovely.
and of course, within twenty minutes of assembly- it was stuffed completely full.
