Foiled by the Pre-Fab Furniture

10 01 2012

I was so excited to finish up my kitchen buffet and hutch tonight and start organizing the kitchen.  I got all the pieces of the hutch out, and started to get to work…when I notice that the first piece I need (part B) is missing the inserts that I screw the cam-lock screws into.  Since this is pretty much a major stabilizing part of the piece, I can go no further.

At first, I thought perhaps I’d grabbed the wrong piece…but no, it was part B as indicated.  Then, I thought maybe I was looking at the wrong side…but no.  I checked it against part C, which is the identical piece that faces it, and the evidence was there, clear as day.

So I called the company on the instructions, and yes, they have to send me a whole new part B.  Which is maybe a doubly good thing, since part of the piece came cracked as well (just cosmetic).  But now I have to wait 5-7 days (and I’m guessing that’s business days) to get the new part so that I can finish the hutch.

Annoying.

Does this mean I’m freed up to take down my Christmas tree? What other projects can I work on instead…

Boo! Just when you think you’ll be finished…oh well. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

I know, very frustrating! But hopefully the part I need will come soon!

You still have your tree up? I hope it’s fake?

I saw the cabinet – NICE! I love the colors, they match your kitchen very well.

Oh yes, it’s a real tree :) But I chatted to my neighbor this afternoon and they haven’t taken theirs down either. So I feel better about it. By this weekend it will be down! The cabinet does look good with the kitchen, doesn’t it? I can’t wait until it’s all finished!
