Cover Rental Cabinets with Contact Paper?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I'm moving into an apartment with custom painted cabinets that don't exactly match my style. I'm not allowed to re-paint them, but was thinking of covering them with self-adhesive (re-positionable) contact paper. My concern is that the contact paper might end up peeling the paint when it comes time to remove. Does anyone have any experience with this, or can someone suggest an alternative means of covering them?
