My laundry room is complete!

I have had the same washer and dryer since I got married, 13 some years ago.  Actually, we bought a used, pukey green pair from the Thrifty Nickel right after we were married.  When my dad was visiting us, the dryer conked out and he surprised us with a new dryer delivered after her left.  I treasured that dryer.
We bought a washer after a few months.  So, I estimate the pair were 12 years at least.

My washer only wrung well with a large load.  So, I spent a year hand wringing all my cloth diapers.  And all my loads smaller than large.

The "before" picture...

Troy and the girls surprised me with a washer and dryer for mothers day!

We spent the last month working on the closet laundry room.  We painted the wooden panelling.  We hung white shelves.  We added some pretty baskets.  And, the finished product...

The room is attached to my kitchen.  It used to have bifold doors, but they won't fit over the machine doors.  I don't mind, I love to see my pretty appliances ;)

(I just noticed I haven't cleaned all the goop from the double stick tape the store used on signs from the doors yet.)


  1. It is so cute - I'm glad the doors don't fit, it looks wonderful the way it is!

  2. I love it! That color adds such a gorgeous pop behind the washer and dryer. Very cute!

  3. I am loving the color behind them too! Very beachy:-)
