My wife bought a beautiful used Craftsman couch for the new house. Unfortunetely, the previous owner had two young boys. Boys, as any parent knows, have an instinctual hatred of nice things. My parents used to run around my house yelling “this is why we can’t have nice things” at random intervals throughout my
childhood life. Often, I would not actually be engaging in destructive behavior, but they thought judicious over-use of the saying would compel me into good behavior.
I am now the father of two young boys. I believe they didn’t yell that enough at me! I got off easy!
Anyways, the couch came with a busted back support. Here’s a slideshow showing the repair I made.
