When you are in the market for a variety of furniture, it pays to consider making a run to an Ikea store. Living in the Indianapolis area our choices for Ikea are Canton, Michigan, Bolingbrook, Illinois or Cincinnati, Ohio. In short….it is a road trip.

We made arrangements to borrow Ben and Becky’s SUV and we were off to Cincinnati. We got there shortly after they opened and spent a couple hours searching for a variety of odds and ends. We bought a bookcase for our living room, curtain rods, hardware and curtains, a non-stick fry pan, coffee cups and a new French press.

We got everything home and Mary assembled the bookcase. She got it put together, leveled and attached to the wall. She also put a custom hole to route an electric cord to power some display lights and our digital picture frame.

Throw in a meal at a Bob Evans and it was a fun way to spend a day.
