I am wallpapering the back of my laundry closet with contact paper. It is an inexpensive way to get a fresh new look in a small space.

Here is the step by step directions for wallpapering with contact paper.

I wanted a little drama and fun in my laundry area, I spend a great deal of time in this space. I love the results.

What do you think? Have you ever used contact paper as wallpaper? It is great in a wet area like a laundry room.

Tomorrow we will stage the closet to give me the utility I need and the beauty I want.
