Seems easy enough right?....Riiiight.
All you need is
- scrapbook paper (or any decorative paper)
- ruler / tape measure
- contact paper
I taped down the contact paper so it wouldn't curl up on me too much and laid out the scrapbook paper.
I noticed that my contact paper wasn't very sticky. I don't know if contact paper has gotten weaker over the years or the roll I had was older than I thought ( a couple months), but it puffed up at the edges and looked bad.
So I brought out the spray adhesive. Probably should have sprayed it on the contact paper and not the scrapbook paper, because the alcohol content of the spray distorted the color or the paper – and it still didn't work well!
Then I tried my fail-proof "glue dots" that fix EVERYTHING...until now...
Oh well, I am sure there is a better way to do this. Right now, I am (moderately) happy (read: can't be bothered to fuss) with the look. Anyway, the paper is hidden under utensils anyway.
There might not seem to be much of a difference between the before and after, but trust me, there is!
