When I opened the box of my assemble-it-yourself kitchen cart I was impressed with the compact, organized packing of the contents. My first impulse was to open all the little packages and jump right in and start screwing (up). I usually read instructions only when I’m elbow deep in frustration, but I listened to my intuition this time and read them first. Glad I did, as the simple as the project appeared, there was an exact procedure that had to be followed. I gave into the designer’s plan and marveled, as I worked, at the precision and planning that went into it. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen such attention to detail. My old “anal” Danish boyfriend couldn’t have done it better. The cart is finished and gracing my kitchen so I decided to create a collage in honor of the project.
