Recently (this morning) I did my first project using contac paper. I covered an oatmeal container. I found a roll of "white marble" looking paper and couldn't resist it. And now I'm hooked on the stuff. I'm going to cover the little computer diskette box I keep my pens in, but can anyone tell me more uses for this pretty paper?

I wonder if I could paint contact paper and then put it over my apartment kitchen cabinets? Also is it easy to remove from them and will it ruin the cabinets?
Jayne, I use Contac wallpaper to decorate between my upper and lower kitchen cabinets. I have a kitchen/family room with fireplace, etc. When I want to change the color scheme, I just look for favorite colors in Contac wallpaper and change the colors. I get lots of compliments on it. I enjoy the fact that it is inexpensive and yet so satisfying. I do the wallpapering myself. Maybe you might like to try it. Mary mecjr @ earthlink .net
