Both of our sons were here yesterday to help move appliances out of the way and to take out the water heater. Hubby wanted hot water as long as possible. Maybe he thought I was going to cook and needed to wash dishes? I could have cooked but couldn't find an extension cord.
Yesterday I stopped at the reupholstery shop and learned that they do make furniture there. I still hope to find something new, but this backup plan pleases me. We both still like our sofa because it is well made and comfy. My chiropractor suggested a furniture company this morning that I will check into, and also the name of another company that will build to suit.
That sounds expensive, doesn't it? I won't know how bad until I check into it. I really would like a love seat or over-sized chair (chair and a half?) if we recover our current sofa and so far, nothing I've seen will match or blend (in my opinion) style-wise.
If I had absolutely loved the fabric upgrade (see my previous post) I might have had a hard time while canceling the order but there were two big factors that made it easy. First of all, I wasn't crazy in love with the material. It was my second choice. A far second one at that. And secondly, the store screwed up by not pulling the discontinued fabric from their sample wall. They could have offered some kind of deal since it was their fault I was going through this. I don't expect something for nothing. I'm really not a demanding customer, but dang, that was a lot of additional money! If I have to pay more than expected, I'll spend it where I can get exactly what I want. Hopefully I will resume the hunt Thursday or Friday.
The installers are done with the kitchen and the refrigerator and stove are back in place. Our old flooring was 26 years old. Boy, those years flew! The middle picture shows lovely cement. The floor color isn't uneven, that it shadow on the left in the bottom photo.
