Contact Paper Ideas

As I was lining the drawers of a baby dresser today (with some adorable white with pink polka dots), I started thinking about all of the projects that could be done with contact paper!  Last night I sat down and started looking around on Pinterest.

  4. I laughed out loud when I read your comment about the fridge that had been covered in contact paper. My husband would probably never let me near a blog again if I tried something like that.

  5. I said the exact thing about the fridge – my husband would kill me too!

  6. i love how simple and easy this idea is! great job, i wanted to know with the wood grain contact paper added onto coffee tables, could you have just traced the flowers or desired pattern and then paint and seal it instead?

  7. Here’s the source of the contact paper fridge. Interesting process and, while not my taste, the idea has a ton of applications!
