Sometimes the Universe conspires to help me. For example, I had a washing machine that was held together by duct tape and a prayer. No I’m not kidding, my husband and I had rigged some wiring so that it would keep working and used duct tape to seal it. I’m thinking it probably wasn’t the safest thing to do, but the price was right. Anyway, I received a gift card from Lowe’s with the instructions to do something to make my home more energy efficient!
Do you see where this is going?
Broken washing machine + Lowe’s gift card = New HE Washing Machine
We got a beautiful brand spankin’ new Samsung High Efficiency Energy Star Washer that is going to save us so much on water and energy costs. How is that for energy efficient?
So, the washing machine is great, we love it, but we did not replace the as dryer well, because it ain’t broke and we’re just not the kind of people who will go replacing things that aren’t broken. As you know, sometimes we use duct tape to fix things that are broken. So, we had a mismatched pair and although I’m totally fine with mixed marriages (I’m in one), I like my appliances to be kinda matchy-matchy. So, I decided I would cover both of them with polka dots and now I have the cutest polka dot washer and dryer set that I’ve ever seen.
It was easy. Here’s all you need to do to make a DIY polka dot washer and dryer set!
- Have a washer and dryer, they need not match.
- Make sure washer and dryer are clean and dust-free.
- Place polka dot vinyl stickers wherever you like on both washing machine and dryer.
And that’s how easy it is to make yourself a polka dot washer and dryer set.
The great thing about the vinyl stickers is that if you get sick of them, they are very easy to remove.
