Well, it arrived Saturday as promised, but guess what?
You're not going to believe it.
This fridge didn't fit either.
This time it was too tall. We had given the salesman at the store the measurements we needed and he assured us that this one would fit, that it wouldn't be too tall and that the manufacturer measured the height from the doors and not the back.
Here's a tip: always check yourself and don't take the word of someone else.
Since we didn't want to refuse yet another fridge, Hubby said he'd saw off the bottom of the cupboard so it would fit. Neither one of us thought it would be a big deal.
Oh brother, were we wrong. It took two saws (skill and jig) a file, and a few under-your-breath cuss words, but after four hours we were able to push our elephant of a refrigerator into it's spot.
HOWEVER, it sticks out about three inches. Who didn't measure for depth? Good grief.
So, what ever you do if you're buying a refrigerator measure depth, width, and height or you might have an elephant in your kitchen like I do.
BUT it's my elephant and it's so shiny and pretty and gives cubed or crushed ice and has a ton of room.
I'm very grateful to have it. Have you made a major purchase that became a trying experience, yet you were very grateful in the end when the dust settled that you had it? Please share. I'd like to think I'm not the only graduate of the school of hard knocks (and cliches ;))
Please stop by Thursday. I will have a review of Merrill Osmond's new book, Faith, Hope and Gravity.
