Hi everyone! I hope you've been having a good week. I had the best of intentions to keep up with my blog posts while travelling for work, but it just wasn't in the cards. Anyway, I'm back now and there's been a whole lot of activity around here.
Things have been very bathroom-focused these days. The kids bathroom is gutted and being wired and plumbed. And, the bathroom/laundry room on the main floor got a little face lift.
Last you saw, it was looking like this:
We decided to take advantage of an awesome sale at Lowe's and bought these guys!
They're Maytag commercial grade and the deal was too good to pass up. And it turns out the dryer was scratched (a teeny tiny scratch) on the side (which you can't see anyway) so we got an additional 10% off!
I've never had a new washer and dryer, not to mention ones that actually are nice to look at. However, it turns out that these ones are MUCH shorter than our old ones. So now we have a great view of the plumbing. Doh!
So, a pedestal seems in order to raise the washer and dryer up. Not just to hide the plumbing but also to make it easier on our old backs since we're both relatively tall. The pedestal pieces that you can buy to match are $300 a piece. No thank you.
Turns out there are lots of DIY options out there to easily and cheaply make your own. This one allows for space to store your laundry baskets.
