Dishwasher Installation!

I was hoping to have had my pictures posted of that project I was working on by now, but alas, life happens - haha! Our dishwasher finally went bad after 10 years of wonderful service! We decided to go and buy a new one to replace the one that was leaking, before mold and other unmentionable stuff starts to grow underneath it. We pulled it out this morning and as we suspected, water everywhere. I've got a heater fan blowing on the subfloor now while hubby is out now getting some plumbers tape and a new elbow compression bolt, joint, whatever that thingy is called - I forgot the exact name - to hook up the copper water line. So anyway, while we were out getting the new dishwasher, we got a new pendant lamp to go over the island to replace the 10 year old flourescent. Long story short, we've been busy the past couple of days putting up the new light, replacing the drywall where we had to cut the hole in the ceiling to install it and now the dishwasher. I'm really looking forward to finishing it and I'm praising God for the blessing of being able to get a new dishwasher and light to replace the old.
Remember those herb seeds that I planted? Well, look what popped up a few days ago and they are growing a little bigger each day!!
Have a happy day everyone and God Bless!

Even though it can be a pain when an appilance dies, it's so nice to have a sparkly new one. I love basil, I'm going to have to try that.

I love it when we get new appliances. Probably because it's something you don't need to replace that often. We are in need of a new microwave and stove. Trying to talk DH into that....he's not as excited!
Have a great day!

Life just keeps going along doesn't it..although this little side track you get a beautiful new appliance! Hope this finds you well, I found some aqua beads for my chandelier and I am so excited. I thought about you and wanted to thank-you for your offer of finding them for me.. I will post a picture when they come and I get them on my light fixture. Can't wait to see more of your projects. Hugs, Cindy

My poor old dishwasher (15) hasn't worked for several months .. I'm hoping a tax refund will help the situation. I am so tired of washing dishes by hand!!!

Liz said...

We need a new dishwasher! Let us know how you like this one! : )

Yay for new appliances!

Looks like spring is coming your way with your little seedlings!

Enjoy your new dishwasher- the one that was in this house when we moved in a year ago was broken and is still in same condition. I tell everyone it works great drying the dishes! Also good for stashing things in a flash!!

Good luck on your installation. Your seedlings are sure growing.. with the hint of spring in the air I actually have a window open and can hear the birds singing...

You are so talented. I love what you did with the pillows. I would give anything to be able to sew. Hope you are having a great weekend.
