Hello, all. I need some advice. I just moved and want to use what I have in my stash for redoing the kitchen. I have a long length of turquoise colored contact paper, so old it no longer will stick on it's own, so that is yet another question about fastening it to the wall. It is about three inches wide, maybe 12 feet long.
So, since it is so old and has been stored in rolled/folded form, it has vague creases. How can I get rid of these? I certainly cannot iron them out, and I think even a year under heavy books would result in nothing.
If you think it impossible to straighten out, my next question is how to cut out the bad bits and still make this gorgeous piece of paper useable in the border at the top of my kitchen wall.
thanks for your input!!
