When I opened our kitchen cupboards for the first time, I was discouraged at how dark and dismal they were. I knew something had to change.
I bought two rolls of contact paper. They matched the curtains that I had hung in the kitchen. Perfect!!!
I started to empty out kitchen cupboards and apply sheets of the contact paper. An amazing transformation occurred… for only a few dollars.
Dark scratched kitchen cupboard became….
A smooth pretty surface.
I realized something half way through the process of cutting, measuring and smoothing out the contact paper…. “I have a lot of cupboards and drawers. Yikes!!”. While everything was out, I decluttered and re-organized. A few things needed polished up or cleaned.
I was lucky to have a small amount of paper left and was able to cover the shelves in my dining room hutch. Will share that in a future post.
An afternoons worth of work, made a huge difference in how my kitchen feels. It gave me the motivation I needed to start more re-decorating and organization projects in my kitchen. Check back for more transformations.
