Here’s a nifty weekend project for you, with five simple steps:
1. Buy a bookshelf from Ikea, $24.99.
2. Buy one foot of leather books from the Strand Bookstore, $150.
3. Buy a mahogany-scented candle from Nooks & Niches, $25.
4. Install the bookshelf, place books on bookshelf, and light candle.
See that? Real Simple ain’t got nothin’ on me.
