Can you stand more kitchen drama? Come back tomorrow if you can't because I've got a real doozy.
Let me set the scene: It was dark and ominous all day and our phone alerts kept blowing up and scaring us to death. We were trying to open up all those boxes and check out the new cabinets while dodging tornado warnings and heading to the basement.
Ida was the least of our problems though. When we ordered all the cabinets we did NOT order the one for over the fridge because I was planning on replacing the old refrigerator with something taller and wider and we were not sure what size we would need as we have a partial wall to consider and needed to do some serious shifting because of the new corner cabinet being larger than the one we have now. We figured we'd order it later and then we forgot all about it when we were faced with the big delay. BIG mistake.
When we got all the old cabinets taken down and moved out of the way and measured we called to order the size we needed and OUR CABINET COLLECTION HAD BEEN DISCONTINUED AS OF AUGUST 30th. We got the last of them. You would have thought that they might have mentioned this over the past four months of going back and forth. If we had known we would have ordered that cabinet right away or canceled the whole order and went with another collection. We didn't get the matching kick plates either because we thought we would deal with it later when we did the floors. Argh...
We asked them what would have happened if one of the cabinets had been damaged in transit and they had no answer since none of them are replaceable. Lucky for us they are all fine. I could have sent the whole order back but they are saying it would be at least another 4 months to get another set in a different model so we decided just to deal with the empty space over the refrigerator which is going to look pretty awful.
