so i've tried to read all the posts i could find on this
i just 'took the plunge'
i contact papered a corner of one of my laminate cabinet doors, and painted acrylic paint over it
i'm in a rented apartment, so i need a solution for these cabinets that is temporary. i'm hoping once the paint dries on the contact paper, i'll still be able to peel the contact paper off without damaging the door.
i'd kill for some painted cabinets, because then i could actually DO something with them. fake wood laminate is useless and gross. i tried
replacing the hardware but nicer hardware didn't look right.
i'm crossing my fingers that this contact paper and paint idea could solve the ugly cabinet problem
does anyone know if contact paper gets harder to remove as time passes? i'll be removing it in about four and a half months.
here's what my cabinets look like
here's the corner i contact papered, and the different spots i tested out paints
here's what the inside of the cabinet looks like
i think today i'm going to blow dry the contact paper to see how it stands up to heat. i'm not sure how long i'm going to leave it up for...my boyfriend says at least a few days. i'm trying to think of ways to 'wear' the paper, the same way it'd get worn out in a kitchen by heat, moisture, oil, dirt, etc
