Decorating Easy {Contact Paper}

June 10, 2013 by 12 Comments

I mentioned a while back that we were getting the itch to find our next home.  We’ve almost gotten to the point where we can’t remember how grueling it is to gut and rebuild a home (if we remembered the process I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t go there again).  When we know more — I’ll definitely let you know!  For now I’ve been decorating easy, with non-permanent decor!  Shelf liner, aka contact paper is an easy way to accent a space temporarily.  Takes me back to college — my cute roomies and I used it everywhere — even covered our kitchen counter tops!  Pull it off and absolutely NO adhesive is left behind (be careful with dry wall — I’ve heard it may not come off as easy).  The stuff still amazes me!  Check out these Decorating Easy Ideas Using Contact Paper and be ready to be inspired!

  1. Isn’t contact paper awesome! I’ve used it on 3 projects in the past 2 months. So inexpensive and I love the patterns that are out there :) xo Kristin

  2. How absolutely cool! Love all the ideas!

  3. Julia @cuckoo4design says:

    I love contact paper too and used it so many times.

  4. I used contact paper to cover up exposed 2x4s holding up the shelves in my pantry when I didn’t feel like painting them. The cheap stuff that I bought didn’t stick for more than a few minutes but then I tried a better brand and it is still holding 8 months later. Here is a link if you are interested…

    This post just saved me some time and money on a project I have on my list. I never thought of using contact paper and it will be a whole lot easier with the same look I am going for.

    I love this post, sooo many ideas!! I’ve used a black & white contact paper (& then switched it months later when I found the one featured on the coasters) for my stove top hood, but wow, I can’t wait to get started on all sorts of projects!!:)

  7. Absolutely worth visiting your blog. My first time here and I do missed so much of your smart ideas & DIY’s.

    TY for sharing.

    BTW, I have an on-going project of my sideboard and hope it will finish soon. It is like more like chevron-y look and hope it will fit perfectly to my new lounge formation.

    Happy Monday.

  9. great ideas! I really like it for the back of bookshelves! and never thought of it for a kitchen backsplash! :-)

  10. So many things you can do with contact paper, great ideas!

  11. Juju says:

    I use contact paper in my Cricuit cutter, and create interesting labels at a fraction of the cost of other vinyl.

  12. I never knew you could do so much with contact paper! I love all the ideas so I’m pinning this now! I’m stopping by from Tatertots and Jello (my posts are #36 How To Repurpose a Frame and #70 Super Creamy Pancakes) Have a great weekend!
