|Before: Bar cart next to a fridge... nothing spectacular and pretty bland.|
I recently rearranged my living room (yes, again). And in the midst of it, my bar cart ended up next to my fridge. It was the most functional spot for it, but not the most beautiful.
I liked that when opening a beer, pouring a glass of wine, or mixing a cocktail, the fridge door was two steps away instead of an across-the-room trek. However, it's a fridge. Not the prettiest backdrop for a bar cart.
At the Dollar Store, I recently grabbed a roll of orange and white graphic contact paper. It's been sitting in the backseat of my car for months while I figured out what to do with it. And then, I had a light bulb moment:
|After: Color! Pattern! The contact paper really brought this area to life.|
And since the roll gave me 9 ft for $1, I still have the rest of the roll left for another project.
This is a super easy and super cheap project for any renter or dorm dweller. You could also use contact paper on your kitchen cabinets, the front of your fridge or all over a mini-fridge, a file cabinet, desk top, or even dorm or closet doors.
What boring surface do you have just begging for a little pattern and color?
