Tired of Your Washer & Dryer? Try This!

I’m here today with another DIY project for the home; specifically for your washer and dryer. If you’re anything like me you own these:

And not these:

Not because ^these^ aren’t stunningly beautiful and work wonderfully, but because I’m cheap and don’t want to pay $1500 per machine! I’ll take my $700 set thank you very much.

As much as I love to save money there is the unfortunate side effect of affordable products often being a bit blasé. Such is the case of my washer/dryer combo. They work wonderfully, we are happy with what we paid for them, their longevity has been great, but when I look at them…meh.



As we were going through our home renovation last August, I remembered I’d seen a photo on Pinterest (of course, where else?!) of someone putting vinyl decals on their washer and dryer. I jumped on the idea because as my laundry room was pulling together, we decided to put my sewing desk and craft supplies in there as well, so it was quickly becoming my little work haven. And if I’m going to be working in a space a lot, it better be pretty!

On one of my many trips to Hobby Lobby I found these decals on a 50% off sale. I snatched them up, ran home, and turned my blasé washer and dryer into something fun and colorful and girly. It almost makes me like doing laundry!

Almost. Let’s not get too carried away.

If you’re looking for a good slap-and-go option I’d go with the polka dots. The chevron pattern was a bit tricky to get level and to line everything up correctly. I did many a redo when I realized my line was off. The end result though was totally worth it and I love walking into my laundry room and having some brightness to greet me.

I hope you enjoyed this quick little DIY inspiration and I’ll see you again soon with my next post!
