Today we got carpet! And since Scott was home you know he couldn’t just sit around…all the furniture got moved stat! This is no final reveal but we sure are looking at a bedroom now!
Did you catch he hung the chandelier last night? Yes, that was #3 in my blog post!
The girls got home and were stunned. They took turns doing a happy dance (and run) and pretending to sleep on the carpet. The carpet is SO SOFT. I love it so much. The girls kept saying it looked like a hotel room and indeed, I hope that’s what we end up with!
And another near miracle, we got part of our cabinet installed today. This cabinet has been the biggest pain. The guy that did it is one of the worst communicators I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. We called at least 4 times over a 5 day span about the install date with NO return call. My mom finally stopped in one day when she was going by and found out it wasn’t ready AND he was going to use the WRONG stain. It took 48 hours for him to produce a sample, on the same day he said he would install it on, in the mean time ignoring at least 3 cell phone calls. All this time I’m having to push back our template appointment with the countertop. Finally today he shows up, 2 hours after the last time he said he would show up and only brings the base because the doors and drawers won’t be ready until next week. Holy cow. I don’t even want to give his name. But of course the guy makes up for his lack of communication skills with his woodworking skills. I suppose that and his price make up for it. I can already tell I am going to be in LOVE with this cabinet.
I think we are nearly done with everything. Everything that was on the list this week is done! We’re just waiting on the last bit of the tile to come in so he can finish the shower and backsplash (after the countertop is set next Friday) and measure for the shower doors and mirror. Oh and I need to decide on some lighting in the bathroom and closet. Oh! Which reminds me…you can see the carpet got installed in the closet there to the left in that last picture. Which really reminds me, what really will be next is figuring out the configuration of the closet and then moving that stuff over so the girls can get into our room! Whew!
In the meantime, I will be having my first night in the room tonight. Too bad we don’t have A/C (which reminds me, that’s on the list for next week too) because I’m not about to turn that fireplace on!
