We're not sure what the appeal of contact paper is. Maybe it's the inexpensive makeover possibilities, maybe it's just fun to peel and stick it to something (sorry, we're easily amused). Either way, we are head over heels for some fancy self adhesive papers. There is everything from pool table felt to wood grains, metals and don't forget pricing after the jump...

The contact papers from designyourwall.com are ones that might require saving a penny or two (depending on your budget). Sure you can find similar styles at discount and big box stores, but these have a little more adhesive and cleaner printing on them. They also are repositionable and won't stick to themselves. They also carry almost every solid color under the sun in matte and glossy forms. Check out the different styles below...
