Washer/dryer solution

Dilemma 1: Our washer broke.
 We use to have a stackable washer/dryer in our tiny little kitchen. After being quoted for a repair with a huge price tag, we decided to just buy a new unit.

We chose this.
LG washer/dryer combo.
If you could fall in love with a washer/dryer, this would be it. 

Dilemma 2: After replacing the stackable unit with this MUCH smaller unit, we were left with a big empty wall and this ugly plumbing.

So, we needed a quick (temporary) fix! I used this little window, that I had previously painted with chalkboard paint as a cover up. I could not hang it flush against the wall because of the perturbing pipes. SO, I hung it like this! 
Wrote a little verse on it to motivate me while doing laundry and whal-ah!

Of course the whole corner needs a little cleaning, and it doesn't fully solve (or hide) the problem, but it helps out for now!

Don't judge my microsoft paint skills, but we are planning on creating a more permanent fix for the washer by building a little home for it, something similar to this!

Sorry for the HORRIBLE picture quality!
More to come on the washer/dryer solution soon!
