Nixon's Memoirs: The new furniture arrives, sort of, at last.

Monday, August 22, 2005

The new furniture arrives, sort of, at last.

Furniture Row called us last Thursday to say that our bedroom suit was finally in, and that they could delivier it Friday or Saturday. I said Saturday, so they told me they would call Friday and confirm a delivery time.

Friday morning, I called them and confirmed a delivery time before I went to bed, which was to be Saturday from 11am-1pm.

Friday night, they call and tell us that our bed was damaged in shipping. We've waited TWO MONTHS for this furniture, and were originally told it would be 3-6 weeks. So, Saturday morning after work, we drove to Furniture Row, and I demanded that they either give us the floor model of the bed we ordered, or some other bed in stock. Turns out, they don't have ANY beds in stock, only floor models, and they're not allowed to sell the floor models. Plus, the delivery truck was actually at OUR HOUSE at this point, and it was only 10:30.

The problem was, at this point our bedroom was totally empty and waiting for this stuff. Our old bed was in the carport. Finally, they offered a temporary fix, which was to loan us a standard bed frame until they can get the rails that broke on the bed we ordered. Funny thing that, since I was pretty much sold on the frame because of its durability. I was even invited to stand on the thing, which I did, and as is well noted on this blog, I'm well over 300 lbs.

So, the delivery truck came back to the store, picked up the frame, and I talked the manager into including a coffee table with the order as a make-good.

Overall, we're VERY PLEASED with the bedroom, it looks fabulous! I just can't believe we had to wait TWO MONTHS for it to arrive.

This bed is WAY too high (and too expensive) to be jumping on! You couldn't even stand on it without getting mauled by the ceiling fan.

But, it is beautiful!

Now, another friend of ours keeps asking us if we've "Christened" the bed yet. Hmm, what a silly thing to do. Wouldn't that be a waste of good Champagne? *snicker*
