My boring cupboards needed a pick-me-up and this weekend I pulled out the Chalkboard Contact Paper and covered two doors. I want to share with you a few tips on how to do this the easiest.
- I had my cupboard doors off and this worked easily.
- Clean surface well and allow to dry.
- Lay contact paper face down and score edge to fit. Line up the manufacturer’s clean edge with one side of cupboard. Mark top, bottom and opposite side. There is a grid to make sure that you are staying square. (see photo 1.)
- Peel back corner and begin slowly putting on your cupboard. It is pretty forgiving to take off and begin again. Be careful not to stretch or bend the paper. (see photo 2.)
- Slowly work your way from one corner to the other until you are pulling straight from the paper. (see photo 3.) Use your arm to help push bubbles out.
- Put your cupboard doors back on and draw! I find that chalk markers work the best.
I have also used this contact paper to label dry goods in my pantry….
