Dramatic Makeover Material:
Metal Contact Paper

Metal contact paper or shelf liners are fantastic for completely transforming furniture and even appliances. It's also very practical when you need a wipeable surface like a backsplash for the stove or a tabletop free of crayon marks.

Rather than doing away with a piece of furniture, try refurbishing it. It's eco-friendly and easy on your wallet too.
