This idea taps into something very primal — that we come to more highly value that which we have a hand in making. This can be true for furniture, but also for our projects, our side hustles, our artistic expressions, our labor's of love. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, either! We _should_ value that which we spend more time working on, and bringing into the world -- but the trick is not to _overvalue_ it either, and to let our pride get in the way of our reason.
