~a contact paper miracle~

Do you recall this post? 
One of my readers just emailed me along with a picture of what she did with 7 rolls of the dollar tree contact paper and a craigslist dresser.
Can you believe this?
She said on the way home from picking it up, one of the drawers blew out on the freeway.
 They went back and searched endlessly for it with no luck.
Her father made her a new drawer and she finished off the fronts as well as the insides with the drawer liner/contact paper.
Total spent on the paper~$7.00~
Now that my friends is genius!
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter holiday!
xoxo

Love it! How does she keep the contact paper edges from curling up with constant use?

PJay said...

It's pretty. I don't know if it's that durable, but definitely pretty. I do have some discontinued vinyl wall paper I might try. I love the look.
