You Can Do Just About Anything with a $10 Roll of Contact Paper
So this is a happy accident. I have a desk that I constructed out of two Helmers and a shelf from Menards and as I was working on some flashcards and rubber cement the other day…let’s just say things got messy and the table top was not pretty anymore. I wasn’t sure what to do until I came across this roll of white marble contact paper on Amazon and let’s just say, my life has changed. Seriously, you can do just about anything with a $10 roll of contact paper. Here’s just the beginning:

You Can Do Just About Anything with a $10 Roll of Contact Paper

Here’s a before and after shot of my desk. Can you say “beautiful”? And it took me less than 10 minutes. So basically, you get a roll of paper, you line it up, peel off the backing, and very carefully stick while pressing down to remove air bubbles. It takes a few tries, especially if you have to cover sides like I did on the desk. But oh so worth it!

The particular paper that I bought is also very easy to remove so if I end up not liking the look in three months, I can just remove and top with another contact paper!

Here’s other DIY projects you can do with a $10 roll of contact paper:

-Update your old coaster set. Simply trace the shape on to the contact paper, cut, peel and apply!
-Make some fancy-ass labels. Because everyone needs their drawers labelled with white marble paper!
-Cover your fridge. Seriously. Do it.
-Use these as drawer liners.
-Cover the front of your school notebooks to make them fancy and unique!

The possibilities are endless and there’s a lot of different designs of contact paper to choose from so click here to explore and start DIY-ing your space!

Thanks for reading,
