tonight i experienced a mini decorating tragedy. i went to ikea with the intention of exchanging my newly purchased enje roller shade for one without little punctures. so i did just that. turned it in for store credit, indulged in some sweedish meatballs, cruised in for my new curtain only to find that THEY NO LONGER CARRY ENJE ROLLER BLINDS BECAUSE THEY HAVE STRING THAT HANGS DOWN THEREFORE THEY ARE ILLEGAL IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. um. excuse me? what the fu*k? i can't put up any other form of curtain in this room. the space is LIMITED. so when we found out the bummer news we nearly cried a little (actually i ended up shopping to cure my sudden sadness) but soon after rushed to the return area where we began our journey and begged to have our original punctured roller returned to us. and she did. and so that is that.
as of midnight tonight ikeas in cali will no longer sell the enje roller curtain! or anything with a string haninging down (ugly regular curtains are the exception) - UNTIL august when they come up with some stringless i don't know what option.
tragic. i know.
