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.)
