DH and I had to replace our washer earlier this year. We were just cruising Lowe's & found the matching dryer on clearance at 50% off & the pedestal for it at $50 instead of almost $300, though the pedestal was silver instead of white.
I spent Saturday afternoon sanding the pedestal with 150 grit sandpaper. Ready to paint but the weather is not planning to cooperate for a couple of days.
Sunday DH & I took our old dryer & a mess of tools up to my Mom's cabin. We did a dryer swap, removing one that is ~35 years old with one that is only
about 18 years old.
. (We later took the ancient one down to the Habitat for Humanity thrift store. Worth more in a tax deduction than trying to sell it ourselves. LOL that they had the matching washer sitting right on the floor!)
Then we cleaned the geothermal swimming pool which had the most amazing & luxurious growth of algae that I have EVER seen. We don't use chemicals in the water & had not been able to get up there for a while. I had never seen algae "stalagmites" before!!!
This morning, we removed a wall panel to try to discover where a water leak in the bathroom is coming from, only to discover...no water lines in that wall. Everything is in the floor. (1972 mobile home.) We decided to quit then as we are planning to replace the hunk o' junk. The schedule on replacement has just been moved up as we now cannot turn water into the house. Washing dishes, hands & flushing is now done with a bucket from outside.
On the up side, we had a wonderful night swim in the cleaned pool! Stars were magnificent before the moon came up!
