Have you ever searched for something on the world wide web [say "modern desk chair"] and found yourself drifting further and further down the rabbit hole? Yes, I’m speaking about myself and from my search on desk chair I wound up on a site selling contact paper!! I curse you, Al Gore for inventing the internet [she said tongue-in-cheek].
So, of course I bought a roll of contact paper in Carrera marble nonetheless!! [While typing up this post I got side-tracked, searched for ceiling fans and wound up on a site that sells industrial plastics! I swear I need help.]
Anyhoo…my contact paper arrived yesterday and in typical fashion I wasted no time finding a victim to adhere it to.
In case you don’t remember these, I hacked my IKEA lacks a while back with overlays. Now repeat that fast 10 times.
They are still holding up just fine. I just thought they could use a little face lift. I gathered up the supplies and got busy.
After wiping off the surface with a slightly damp cloth I measured the top then cut to size, adding an extra 0.25″ to each side.
I am starting to rack up the contact paper projects around here. But, I still think it’s one of the cheapest, most fun, easy, quick ways to breathe new life into furniture and decor. Oh, and my plastics purchase arrived today so stay tuned for that project!
