Now's a good time to mention that I have a patient family who will occasionally indulge me when I get an idea to do something like this late at night.
It was quite a job and took us several hours to complete. Halfway through, I was glared at more than once, and received the answer "I DON'T CARE!!" to the innocent question, "Do you think this is dark brown or purple?". But since I knew we could all sleep in the next day, I only felt a little bit guilty. And besides, we found some books we forgot that we had.
In the end, we were all happy with the result.
