Assemble Carefully

A newcomer’s quest to usher in her new life goes much easier when she follows directions

For 15 years, I tried making these barstools work. But they were squeaky and wobbly. I had to turn them over and tighten the screws that held them together every few days. The stools had big wicker backrests that our cat used as scratching posts until I put double-sided sticky tape on the wicker. The cat left them alone, but the tape made the stools look even worse.
