Yo, Yo! I am a bit giddy with the progress so far this week! I spent most of my day at our new house painting the basement walls, and I felt like a little part of a well-oiled Renovation Machine! The driveway must have had 6 or 7 trucks parked at one point. Several guys putting in the floor, a few more preparing closets for new doors, and another ripping out the upstairs carpeting. Jay (our builder) was around too. Lots of work being done and the house was happy to have so much attention! Monday, the painters sprayed and rolled the ceilings and primed the walls. Wow! So much better already!
Yesterday, you could find me once again at Ikea in the kitchen planning department. We will be ready for the cabinets to be installed next week, so I wasn’t leaving without running the ole credit card and scheduling the delivery. Of course, 3 of my 6 horizontal uppers were not in stock. Someone had come earlier that morning and bought a big quantity of these, leaving just 3. I was there shortly after 11am, so I basically lost out by one hour. What luck! The good news is there are more coming in on Friday. The bad news is I will have to make a 5th trip back to the kitchen department to pay for these 3 uppers and pick them up myself, as there is no way to add them to the rest of my order scheduled for delivery on Sunday. I have learned that buying an ikea kitchen is not about fantastic customer service! Anyway, my card was swiped, and I feel satisfied that 98% of my cabinets will be delivered on site this weekend.
