You may remember my office makeover from quite awhile back. Since then, things have gotten worn and I just needed a change. I found a couple rolls of really pretty wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby and thought, "Why not?" First, I cut pieces that would cover my two desks. The tops were worn and stained and I didn't feel like painting them.
I sprayed the desks down with spray adhesive and smoothed the wrapping paper down.
You're probably thinking, "But that won't be durable!" I've found that if you do this with a thick paper with a glossy finish, spills wipe up easily. Besides, if the paper starts looking too bad, I can just rip it off, toss it in the recycling and start over. For around $6 a roll, it's no problem.
I then went on to freshen up my filing cabinets in the same way. I stripped off the cloth from the drawers.
Then, I sprayed the drawer fronts with spray adhesive and stuck a piece of wrapping paper to them.
I trimmed each drawer with a craft knife and I was done!
