These countertops are a perfect solution for those living in rental homes or apartments, or even those who own their home and are simply on a tight budget. This durable contact paper is AMAZING! Because the paper is so thick, it looks like marble and feels like laminate. And, the cost for my counter space was just under $50. Pretty crazy, huh?

Before we get started, let me show you what I started with…

Yep, not bad… but they didn’t make me happy.

So, let me share a perfect, budget-friendly solution to update your countertops that looks like a million bucks! Well, maybe not a million, but I’m sure a lot happier! Here are my DIY countertops with contact paper applied to them.

The contact paper is very durable, very thick, and VERY sticky, but pretty easy to work with.

The best trick for working with it is to spray lots of water on the counter before applying the contact paper! Seriously! If I had to do it over, I would even put just a tad bit of liquid dish soap in the water. This enables the paper to be moved around and applied properly. Then, as you smooth the paper down ), the water ‘gushes’ out from under the paper and the paper remains stuck to the counter! Pretty crazy, again, right?!

Even though the contact paper is really sticky, it can be lifted and re-positioned over and over!

In order for the adhesive film to fit nicely around the edges and corners, I used trick number 2! Grab your handy-dandy hairdryer!

This film becomes very pliable with just a little bit of heat. When you begin applying heat, you will notice the paper start to soften… after about 10-15 seconds, it almost feels like it’s melting. At this point, you can quickly and gently stretch the paper around the corner first, then the edge. It works just like using shrink wrap! Pretty crazy number THREE!!!

Don’t worry if you make a mistake… you can reheat, lift off, and start over again.
