Hello!! It’s me again. Melodee 🤓 Your personal Organizing Nerd.
Do you have any old melamine cupboards in your house? You know the ones I am talking about, right? They are boring and white. And usually a little banged up. These ones are located in a laundry room, but I have also seen them in a storage room or garage.
This turned out to be a fun and easy project. Hardly anyone likes to do laundry anyway, and this room is visible from the kitchen so it was screaming for a mini-make makeover. But painting was a very permanent option, and new cupboards was an expensive option, so this is a good marriage of the two options. But luckily it doesn’t require a high commitment level.
For this project I ordered some contact paper from Amazon. Yep, you heard me right. Contact paper. The possibilities are endless.
It’s not only for lining shelves. And if you hate the look, pull it off. No harm, no foul. One by one I took off the cupboard doors and wrapped each of them like a present. The tricky part was the larger pieces, trying to get them straight and not crumpled would have been easier with a second set of hands. After the contact paper went up the it was obvious old handles needed an updating too. A quick run to Home Depot and we found these cute handles for a little color splash.
The contact paper updates the space in an inexpensive way. Overall, the contact paper achieved the desired effect. An updated space for under $100.00.
