Mop It Up Monday #55

The last three weeks have been a bit DOWN & DIRTY around here {more of the latter thanks to a bit of a predicament}. Our washer was on the fritz, so the warranty people sent a repairman over. And he made it 10x worse. Then they sent Sears over to fix it. And after a lot of ya-da-ya-da-ya-da and SEVEN repairmen later...it was finally deemed unrepairable and they are replacing the thing {geez-a-lou...it's been a long three weeks}. Some of the washer mayhem has left a weird streaky-ness from moisture on my laundry room walls. So, {the FUN news to this DIYer}, this calls for a laundry-room makeover {again}. Although our machine was only two years old, I'm so ready to kick it to the curb. In a weird way, I am ecstatic to do laundry in my own home again {although my neighbors have been unbelievably generous with the use of their machine}. We're heading to Sears tomorrow to pick out a new washer!

Soooo...laundry room makeover in the next few weeks! With posts and photos and the craziness that will no doubt ensue. Do stop by for the fun. :)  

{Here are the TOP TEN

  18. Been there, done that with the washing machine repairmen. They kept telling me over and over that it was perfectly normal for a washer to make clanking noises and that I should get used to it! WHAT? Sears is no longer on my list for appliance purchases, let me tell ya! I'm waiting for it to kick the bucket so I can get a new one. Good luck with your new purchase and thanks for hosting. :-) Sue
