Tiles for the Second Floor Bathroom
Overwhelming sense of panic. That basically describes how I'm feeling at the moment.
You see, my sister has been telling me to look for tiles, paint colors, and other things needed for the house months ago. But I was too busy looking at international websites instead of checking to see what's locally available. (Well, I have been to the local home depots countless times but I was hoping they would have the tiles I was fixated on.)
Sadly, I have to raise a white towel to the fact they don't have the tiles I want. So now I'm now doing what I should have done to begin with - work with what's in front of me.
Well, Alecto has begun fixing the electrical mess to something we can actually live with. They started last August 16 and will be done after 25 days (maximum they tell me). We now have to buy the lights for them to install and check if everything is working properly.
Rabacon tells me that they can start next Tuesday. Yikes! We haven't even decided on color scheme of the rooms much less the actual tiles to be used. Due to major procrastination, I am scrambling to get everything done!
Progress was made though yesterday courtesy of my sister - she chose the tiles shown above. But I nearly had a panic attack earlier today when the sales lady at Wilcon advised that they no longer carried the mosaic tile border you see in the photo. I asked her to double check their warehouse and to call me as soon as possible. Thankfully, she called back with good news - they have all the tiles I've asked for. Crisis averted.
This episode also taught me that, if there's something I really like, to buy it right away as you'll never know if it will still be there tomorrow.
We plan to buy most of the lights needed for the house and settle the rest of the tiles this weekend. At least, that's the scenario I'm hoping for.
We've also decided to buy all the tiles from just one place to maximize the Php 800 delivery fee. About the delivery fee, while I understand that we are technically considered to be outside Metro Manila, I still can't see why it can't be waived considering the village is just 15-20 minutes away...
