Ok – I do exaggerate, but how can I explain my good fortune? I am pretty ornery, especially when it comes to washing dishes by hand. My sweet hubby and son really want to help out in the kitchen, but it does a number on my tummy to eat of a not so clean fork…..you get the picture. They have wonderful intentions, I should just be appreciative. Why am I so mean????
So, one night a few of weeks ago I had insomnia. I decided to browse craigslist. I had long wondered about these cuties:
This is a Haier Mini Dishwasher
So, I thought “what are the chances…..” and typed in my desired appliance.
“Noooo waaaayyyy!” I wanted to yell, but it was 1:00 am, and I knew it would not be wise. It was brand new, in the box still, they wanted $50.00. Not bad, as new with shipping is $200.00 or more. I immediately contacted the owner, and then did it again. I contacted the owner four more times before 8:00 am, I was obsessed.
Finally a response!
“It’s yours.” This was July 4th, they agreed to meet me with the goods. I only had three $20.00 bills, they had no change, so they gave it to me for $40.00!
My beautiful little dishwasher has a new home, and has done two loads a day of dirty dishes, and it works like a charm. I am once again head over heels in love with my tiny home.
Ok, so here are the pics:
Remember, this is how the sofa was before – it worked fine, I just lifted the ‘flap’ of fabric when I needed something from under there. It was not very practical for a dishwasher though……
Notice it is not on the countertop? I have a free countertop! Awesome! Pretty granite : )
Here it is!
This what I have been up to lately - I built cabinets under my sofa. Many thanks to the guys at Lowe’s… so patient with me!
And here is a load of clean dishes, see how much I can get in there?
So, while I was on the subject, I added this little detail to my sink cabinets:
So now it looks like this:
I love living here.
