Yesterdays disaster has turned out manageable (as hoped for)...
Thank you all for your heartfelt comments, I appreciate it so much!
We returned to the shop and everybody was very apologetic and kind, promising speedy production and delivery of the originally ordered sofa and on our way out we discovered a bench, just reduced, which will fit in nicely in the entrance across our hall chest! So much done in 20 minutes! We would not have been there if it was is not for the wrong sofa!!!
There is often something good to be found in something gone wrong!
Now it comes together very nicely and I hope to finish this project as soon as all missing pieces arrives.
