I ventured into Ikea today. It's far from being my favorite place, their products are about the opposite of what I'm looking for. That is, stuff there tries to be uber-modern and rather low quality. But I was striking out on some things - mirrors in particular - and had to take a chance.

Despite the Christmas music I survived the journey, bagging a rug and curtains for the media room. The curtains are necessary because the couch does not allot space for blinds. There may be a better solution in the future, but this one works for the moment.


The next stop was Expo (Home Depot's furnishings branch) on Convoy. The selection was impressive and I managed to at last find a light fixture for the upstairs bathroom. (And it turns out my only remaining bulbs are a very cool tone and I haven't yet installed photoshop to color correct). I wired it up, the fixture and fan are run off of a motion sensor with a switched light above the tub.

No luck on mirrors at either location.

My last stop was the zoo - er - Costco to put in an order for blinds.
