Laundry Room Update...This is NOT Going Well

I cursed myself!  Yesterday, on Instagram I shared this picture of the final touch in my newly made over laundry room.  The caption: "that's a wrap." Yeah, well guess what..the washer had other plans.

It honestly wasn't an hour later that I noticed a pool of water in the pan under the washer.  Are you kidding me?   This is not normal.  Water is not supposed to be in the pan. Don't get me wrong, it's better than it being all over the floor, but it's not supposed to be in the pan.  Something is leaking. Something had me sitting on the floor next to the washer with a turkey baster and a bowl for a good half hour sucking out water drop by drop.  (Not even joking...don't laugh!)  Something is holding up my big reveal! 

So today, instead of taking some gorgeous pictures of a newly made over laundry room (that I'm sure will never be nearly as neat as the moment it was snapped on film) to share on the blog, I will be dealing with finding an appliance repair man to come in and tear apart my laundry closet and figure out what is wrong with my washer. 

The washer is old.  I don't know how old, but it's likely not worth putting too much money into.  We will see what he says...but I'm pretty sure any repairs or replacements are going to push me over my $100 laundry closet makeover budget.  A new washer was not in the plan or the budget. 

The good news is at least I have about $50 to play with since the laundry room makeover, to this point, with a new light, new cabinet, shelving, decor, paint, and a wall mounted drying rack, didn't cost me much at all.

Thanks for stopping by 2IY! If you like what you see, we'd love for you to pin it!
