Contact Paper Projects Ideas

I was recently in need of an affordable way to block the 3pm sun from my office window.  Decorative contact paper became my cheap solution.  You can purchase self-adhesive contact paper or shelf liners are most convenience stores like Target, Home Goods or Wal-mart.

I remember in college freshman year I had to get really creative with contact paper to cover up the 1980's fake wood paneled closets and it worked like a charm. 

Fourteen Contact Paper Project Ideas
#1- Line the inside of your drawers (actual intent)
#2- Line windows for privacy
#3- Line serving trays
#4- Frame the pattern
#5- Frame between photos for a decorative border
#6- Cover the outside of  your cabinets
#7- Stick to your ipad or laptop for a decorative decal
