Puttin' It All Together

Jack and I got out an allen wrench, directions, and a considerable amount of patience and put together two pieces of furniture. We ordered a futon from a local department store. It came in two boxes and numerous pieces. It only took us one evening to assemble:

Next came a bench that I had ordered on-line. The quality of the piece was evident; however, the instructions assumed a bit of know-how! It has a hinged lid to provide access to storage. The directions simply said, "Attach hinges to lid." Duh? How!? We tried numerous configurations, and finally discovered how to attach a hinge. Now I feel like I'm on an episode of DIY for Dummies. Here's the bench with Cosi posing in the picture:
