Getting Hopeful

I have been regularly emailing the company from which I ordered (and paid) the master bathroom double sink vanity on November 19th from www.bathroomvanity.com.

72" Providence Driftwood Double vanity is on its way to us.

When I received confirmation and status of the order back in November the email stated “awaiting shipment”.

The Brinkley Demilune vanity is no longer available -grrrr.

Knowing that my order for another vanity from Pottery Barn, after a 6 month wait, was canceled I decided to be pro-active and ask for a firm shipping date.

We opted for the 4cm eased-edge marble top which in itself weighs a lot..

After emailing 3 times I finally received an email with a shipping tracking number.  The shipment is in 2 pieces (cabinet and a marble top with 2 sinks) weighing 422 pounds and should be in our area on Friday, January 8th.

The vanity comes with integrated undermount sinks.

At that time the local office of the transport company is supposed to call us to set up a time for delivery.

The vanity will sit under the window of the master bathroom.

I expect it will be delivered to The Glade early next week where the bathroom is totally ready for its installation.

I just remembered I still have to buy faucets!

Do you have people to help you lift heavy packages?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. Charlie is a little guy but he can move a piano. My son and our friend, The Viking, are both strong, good helpers. Our son is probably strongest of the three but a haphazard helper. Jo

    1. It’s on the truck headed from Texas to Maryland. Nice to know I could be a suspense writer. My first thriller will be called “Vanity”. Jo
