Good Questions: Contact Paper for Cabinet DIY?

contactpapers110708.jpgLisa sent in a good question for the DIY minded in the community. She asks: Is there any type of contact paper out there that I could use to cover my kitchen cabinets (they are flat, nasty almond-color from the 80's with wood trim at bottom. I'd like to try to match the wood color - or go white - but the surface of typical contact paper would be too obvious - any suggestions?

I'd also like to know of your experience with the stainless steel contact paper used to cover appliances - what are your thoughts on it?

If you have any advice, ideas or suggestions for Lisa, please let her know in the comments...
