The tiles have been set and look stunning. The porcelain has a beautiful pattern within the colour, reminiscent of a marble stone. We are very happy with the results. It really provides this old home with a fresh new look… the right hint of modern without disturbing the charm of the home.
We found the perfect colour tone for the grout…it creates a unified look throughout.
Still anticipating the arrival of the cabinets. They were supposed to be delivered the same week as when were laying the floor.
There was no sign of their arrival.
We head over to Home Depot to see if they have any idea of when the ETA of the cabinets could be. The kitchen associate advises that they are to arrive on April 9th…a week from now.
It didn’t make sense for Bonnie and Bill to stay in Toronto for a full week, so they decided to head back to Ottawa on Tuesday. Chris and I also decided to head back to Ottawa for the Easter Long Weekend, since we haven’t seen our families in months.
That said, I had a sinking suspicion that the cabinets would arrive as soon as Bonnie and Bill head out the door and hit the open road.
To remove any nagging suspicions, I call Home Depot to speak to the kitchen associate again. The associate advises that the cabinets are currently in transit, but not in Canada. He assures me that the shipping company will call 48 prior to arrival to set a delivery date. I ask for a tracking number, which apparently they can’t provide. He advises that he will contact me the next day to provide an update.
Good thing is that our appliances arrived and they are fabulous. I sold my old appliances in minutes on craigslist. In a half hour the stove was already picked up and the same buyer purchased the fridge on the spot.
We wish Bonnie and Bill a safe trip back to Ottawa as Chris and I leave for work.
I recieve a call from the shipping company at 2pm that afternoon advising that the cabinets are in and ready to be dropped off at any time.
I had visions of Bonnie and Bill in their car, getting off the Queensway in Ottawa. Immediately, I call Chris to tell him the cabinets are here…he’s in a meeting so I reach out to Bonnie. No answer. What are the chances that they are still in Toronto? Try again, this time Bonnie answers…and they are just leaving Costco.
We totally dodged a bullet.
Funny thing to mention…I receive an email from the associate from Home Depot at 5pm Tuesday advising that he still hasn’t heard back regarding the shipment and will reach out to me on Wednesday should he hear anything.
Cabinets Arrive! Finally, the boys can start the installation.
