Okay, so this will be a long process but I thought
I would share with you what is happening so far....
I recently purchased a condenser dryer and a wall
cupboard that houses an ironing board. The dryer can
not be hung on the wall because it is a condenser dryer,
not sure why but I best follow the rules....
This meant that my laundry layout was not going to be
very functional so I decided to try and sell my top
load washer that is only just 3 years old but not
good for my space anymore....
This is what my set up looked like before with
the top load washer and no dryer....
Thanks to the power of Buy Swap and Sell
the washer was sold and ready for pick up....
The space doesn't look big enough
for that washer to have fit in....
My dryer arrived and I just sat it in there waiting
impatiently for my new washer to arrive, the washer
left Tuesday evening and we were without a washer
for 4 days so it didn't disrupt things at all....
My new washer and accessories arrived on Friday so
what's a girl to do while she is home alone
on a Friday evening?
Jacky Mister had gone away for the weekend
so I decided to start setting it all up....
A bit of a reshuffle in the space and the base drawer
was ready for the brackets to be fitted...
I love a bit of DIY on a Friday...LOL
My feathered friend CHOOKY arrived for a flying overnight
visit so I put her to work because she was just in time for the
dryer to be lifted up and fitted to my growing stack....
Base drawer unit.....Tick
Slide out shelf joining unit.....Tick
I then pushed the white melamine cupboard back into
the remaining space and it looked so wonky and uneven!
Talk about the "Leaning Tower of Peisley"
Hmm! What to do because that would have driven me mad!
Nothing tonight because it was time for Chooky and I to
head out for some pizza's and ciders, I think we had earnt them!
After Chooky left on Saturday morning I decided to tackle
the wonky cupboard problem and so I popped a couple of blocks
under the left hand side and added a hanging rod between the
wall and the cupboard to hold it all nice and secure until the
next stage of the reno, that will see the cupboard and tub go
and a corner bench and cupboard unit built with a new sink....
My ironing cupboard is waiting patiently for my builder
friend that should be in town in a week or so and hopefully
he will get the sliding door sorted as well...
So much more room in there for activities!!!
I gave the washer and dryer a run on Saturday and the
good news is they both worked perfectly and were nice and quiet
and didn't rattle around at all so all in all a successful build....Yay!
The dryer is great, no moisture in the room at all, after the load
there is a water container that you just empty in the sink....
Watch this space for my ever evolving laundry makeover....
Until next time, Happy Stitching
