Rosewater-

Nothing crafty to add, just thought I'd chime in the MACtac vs. Contact paper thing.  They are both brand names for the same thing, adhesive backed material usually vinyl or paper. I grew up using MACtac products because my dad works at the ohio plant, and was always getting misrun items that the plant was throwing away.

Mac Tac as far as I have seen it at local art supply store is basically a huge sheet  of double stick tape. (18"x22" I think).  It is GREAT for sticking paper or fabric to other stuff. If you want some, it is available from http://www.seattleartsupply.com

I think they still do mail order...

I just bought 2 double rolls of mac-tac at a garage sale for 50 cents each!! It's clear and I plan on using it for stencils to etch glass with.

Here in Canada, Mac Tac is usually used for lining cupboard shelves.  Unless your crafty!
I have also used it for "laminating" books and posters and stuff...

i've used skyblue contact paper on boring white kitchen tiles. i live in a student flat where no permanent alterations are permitted, but the good thing about contact paper is that it can be removed without a trace. i did this a few years ago, but it still looks as good as new, and the overall effect is pretty impressive. highly recommendable!



I really like what you've done there!

Do you think this would work in a bathtub/shower?

I was wondering the same thing. I have those exact same boring white tiles in my bathroom and think the blue contact squares would go great in there, but would they be negativally affect by the contact of the shower water?

Nuno930 - It should work in a shower or bath as well.  Just make sure the surface you stick it to is dry and your edges are pressed down.

Rosewater - You mentioned putting contact paper in the printer.  Have you tried this or know of anyone who has?  I want to try it but don't want to ruin my good printer at the same time Smiley

Thanks,
HeatherB

*bump*

Well I gave this a shot, and I really like the results. Haven't tried out the shower on it yet though *fingers crossed*

Here's before:



And here's after....we decided to only go two rows up so it would be a subtle accent.





Thanks for the idea, I love this place.
