The previous owners of our house had a thing for contact paper. Sure, every shelf in the kitchen is lined with the stuff– that seems pretty normal. But the outside of some of the drawers are also covered in the stuff, not to mention the room I call the studio, which I thought was covered in paneling, has all four walls that are actually covered in woodgrain contact paper– not even wallpaper, but contact paper.
Still, even with an overabundance of the stuff around me, I’m still taken with the array of awesome retro patterns you can get when you find yourself a vintage role of the stuff. Check out these selections from Etsy and perhaps you’ll find yourself thinking about fake-wallpapering a room, too.
