My boyfriend and I are about to get our first apartment, and a new microwave, our kitchen is gonna be done in red, black, and silver, but this is the microwave we can afford http://i.walmart.com/i/p/00/08/46/91/10/0008469110032_500X500.jpg
everything else is red,or black, or black and silver, I was thinking contact paper on the sides and top, but I duno if thats safe, anyone have any ideas??

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I just bought that microwave a couple of weeks ago Smiley  The top and sides would be contact-paper-able but they aren't flat.  They have shallow recesses on them, but I think it will work... just be sure to cut openings where the vents are.  Super good news...putting contact paper on the front should work really slick!  I would cut a piece slightly larger and then have a helper hold a metal straight edge (it should flex to hold tight to the curves) while you trim the excess with a utility knife.  I would probably do the sides in a stainless steel contact paper and the front in red, with white trim.


There is no such thing as a stay-at-home mom.
