Magnetic Appliance Covers Perk up Boring Dishwashers and Washing Machines

Lindsay ~ 19 September 2011

If you have a dinged and dented, boring old dishwasher or washing machine that’s something of an eyesore, you could spend hundreds (or thousands) on new models, but if they’re still working fine, perhaps you could just perk them up with a little artistic flair.

The “Playful Kittens In Basket Magnetic Appliance Cover” adds a whimsical touch, and there are other images and scenes you can pick up as well. (This stainless steel magnet makes your avocado dishwasher from the 80s look like a sleek, modern model.)

Prices start around $12 at Amazon, so the magnets are definitely a lot more affordable than new appliances!

What a great idea! I will definitely be using this. I have tried everything from covering mine with a blanket to pushing odd pieces of furniture up against it to hide it but neither have been a suitable solution.
