comment How to get cable staples to stick in the wall
@JPhi1618 Let me join you off in the weeds. What's wrong with MDF on a bathroom floor? I installed some MDF wainscoting that meets the floor of our half bath, with the wooden baseboards over it.

@wallyk That's an interesting idea, but I'd rather not remove the baseboards for this project.

@wallyk yes, but the baseboards don't have enough room under them to accomodate any speaker wire.

@JPhi1618 thanks, but the room does have hardwoods. I just updated the question.

comment Should I put a dimmer switch on a ceiling fan?
Ah, from the instruction pamphlet: "CAUTION: Use only with permanently-installed 120V~ halogen or incandescent fixtures. To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not use to control receptacles, fluorescent lighting fixtures, motor-driven appliances, or transformer-supplied appliances." Thank you very much for helping me not to burn down my house!

My switch is this model, whose spec sheet online lists "Ceiling fans" under "Direct load type compatibility". So it sounds like I'm in the clear?
