Homeowner wants to hide her washer and dryer, so look what she did for just $5!

My washer and dryer are in my kitchen. It drives me crazy. And until we get to remodeling that part of the house, I needed a temporary fix! So with a few failed attempts at covering them up, I was finally successful with this idea. I wanted to make this as inexpensive as I possibly could. I went to the Dollar Store for the curtain rods and the shower curtain rings. And for the curtains themselves, I scoured the thrift stores for fabric. And without any luck I went through old curtains I had from our previous home that didn’t fit the windows of our new (work in progress) home. I found the length I needed (84″) and went to work. I knew I wouldn’t be using these curtains again so I wasn’t hesitant to cut little slits in them to put the curtain rings thru. I first hung the curtain rods from the ceiling. Using a measiring tape to get the exact width and a simple piece of string to help keep everything in line. One those were in place I layed the curtains on the floor stacked one on top of another. I cut slats for 3 curtain rings per panel. And that was it. Hung them up and walked away! I completely love the temp fix to hide the washer and dryer before we can relocate them to the basement.

Side Note: I strongly recommend the curtain rings. They make opening and closing the curtains extremely easy. I originally had the curtains hung without the rings and could barely pull them open. Not to mention they came up short in length. The rings make all the difference!!

Hung a cheap $2.50 curtain rod on the ceiling.
Made sure to purchase the extra long width and length.

Bought $2 worth of shower curtain rings at the dollar store.
I used curtains I already owned and didnt plan on using anywhere else in the house. I cut slats in the top part of them to slip the rings thru.
