Anyways, as you can imagine, squee-jee-ing the stuff on without major bubbles or wrinkles is a feat. It took me a few hours to do the counter tops BUT it was well worth it since I'm in a rental house I love (but cannot change the tacky yellow counters.) The final product is quite handsome, considering the total cost for all the counters was under 20 bucks. It looks like faux granite-- definitely not like the real stuff, but also not like 40 year old scratched counters with stickers slapped on top, which is essentially what it is. :)
The sink is easy to cut around, for what it's worth-- some tutorials online suggest cutting it perfectly to fit. That would drive me crazy. I cut out a hole for the sink, but a very rough one-- and then used a common steak knife to cut the precise edges once the stuff was already stuck on evenly. Overlapping bits peeled right off the sink. Trust me, the stuff has some give/stretchiness (not unlike a tee shirt) so you don't really want to measure things until it's already down.
For air bubbles, try poking them with a tack or sewing needle and decompressing slowly. For wrinkles, try slicing and overlapping the pieces. The almost imperceptible line is WAY better than a grime-catching wrinkle.. or worse: tearing the thing up in frustration.
Good luck, you won't regret this weekday morning renovation! :)
Tools I used:
Sharp scissors, hair cutting size
Large Phillips head screw driver
Large Flat Head screw driver (for prying and lifting sink)
Folded index card for smooshing bubbles
Several straight pens
Hot Glue Gun
Rubber Dishwashing gloves
I live in an old farmhouse and I have nasty stained fake wood counters, no matter what I used to clean them they looked like crap. The first thing I did was remove the "Beading/Trim" section on the back of my counter that joins the wall. Mine was nailed so I just pried it off with a hammer and put it back on the same way.
Secondly if you can; undo your sink clamps. This will allow you to stick the paper right under the edge of the sink rather than trying to cut. I threw away one big piece trying to cut perfectly around my sink.
Third, lift up sections of the sink with the flathead screwdriver and slide small long skinny sections of paper under it. When I first started I had about a 2" outline of contact paper just around my sink. Don't worry the seams won't show, which is a great plus about this paper.
Fourth put the clamps back on the sink or it will wiggle, I put my clamps on last but I should have done it fourth.
Next take large sections and stick them down. I cut long ones the width of the paper. Stick them so they are smooth. This will require one or two resticks and then smooshing down with an index card. Use a pin to pop air bubbles. I stuck the pin in at a 45degree angle, then resmoosh. Don't worry about your edges right now.
***The edges won't stick, they peel up...Read more ›
- Beautiful design
- Not expensive
- It's not paper, it's kind of a plastic material, almost like vinyl but it's NOT shiny. I am not sure if the glue will ruin my furniture in the future (if i consider changing it sometime) but its just too soon to tell.
- It doesn't stick to the surface THAT much at the beginning but it does over time, making it stay in place. I consider this to be a good thing while you are applying it over a surface, because it makes the work easier (you can remove it easily if you fail while pasting it).
- Easy to cut. Not thick.
- Since the paper is not thick it will probably show if you use it over another pattern, just a little bit on well lightened places. But it looks excellent on white and black surfaces (my drawers are white and my boxes were black).
The ONLY bad thing for me was that I thought it would be a little bit thicker but I don't really care.. they were only my expectations. I LOVED it anyways!
I hope you enjoyed my review.
