Happy Monday, friends! Today I want to share with you a fun way to use removable contact paper! Come check out where I used this fun pattern from Target!
We have a few drawers at our lake house that have some pretty back scuffs. Frankly I got tired of looking at them so when I was at Target recently, I found this cute roll of black and white contact paper for $5. I thought it would be perfect for sprucing up our little drawers! This is the pattern I chose.
Here is the inside of one of the bathroom vanity drawers. I tried everything to clean it, and even a Magic Eraser wouldn’t touch it. So, I decided to cover it instead with peel and stick contact paper.
I measured the inside of the drawer and made a cutout of the center where the pipes go. Then it was just a matter of peeling the backing of the paper off and smoothing it down as I went. Thankfully the paper can be pulled up and repositioned several times. You can use a wallpaper smoothing tool, but I just used my hands. So much better!
I added my hair dryer, a flat iron and a scented sachet. Now the drawer looks fresh and clean!
A little before and after. What a difference and what a surprise when you open the drawer! It makes me smile every time. Removable contact papers are available in SO many colors and patterns and very reasonably priced. And if you get tired of the paper or it gets messed up, simply remove it! Wouldn’t this look great in a pantry to line the shelves, or under a sink that needs a little TLC? Be sure to check out the dollar spot at Target to see their $5 patterns. (I had enough paper in one roll to do 2 drawers.)
This roll of removable contact paper comes in a roll that is 18 by 120 inches and was just $5. They had several patterns all in the same size. I’ve also seen contact paper at the grocery store, Lowe’s and Home Depot, so it’s very easy to find. What else might you do with contact paper? The sky is the limit!
Well, that’s my little tip for the day! I hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo Dell
