Jonathan Lo of Happy Mundane recently shared a great way to personalize furniture using good old contact paper.
This genius DIY is really quite simple:
- Buy contact paper in a faux wood grain. Jonathan chose walnut and bought it from Home Depot.
- Pick a piece of furniture you want to make-over. Jonathan hacked his IKEA MICKE desk (in the white/birch effect).
- Measure area of application, cut contact paper accordingly, apply carefully and voila! You've given a desk, bookshelf, credenza, etc. a mini-facelift!
