I visited my room today to drop off resources and to get an idea of what I need to do. The teacher did an amazing job at just leaving what might be helpful/useful to me. I don't need to do a huge purge. But, I noticed that the room is all mismatched with cabinetry and shelves. Oh. And the lovely metal file cabinets! I know I can brighten it up and make it special. Which leads me to this question... Has anyone used contact paper on file cabinets or bookshelves? If so, how did it turn out? Did it last awhile? Was it hard to do? I've seen some cute designs with contact paper and washi tape. I would love to do all black with splashes of colour from the washi tape (trim). Any suggestions or advice would be most appreciated. It's exciting that I have a blank canvas to work with!
