Made in Germany and often known as DC Fix, the self adhesive range of contact papers and designs are really fantastic. Creativity is the key and don't worry if you don't have too much of that because the uses for this versatile product can be as basic as covering shelves or bench tops! Transformations are amazing and we have some pictures from clever "DIYers" to prove it.
The product itself is of superior quality so it can be used on cupboards, tiles, old laminated bench tops, doors, fridge fronts, glass, sealed timber surfaces, metals or tin surfaces. Pretty much any smooth or semi smooth surface that needs a change or "face lift" is fine. Contact Paper is an interior product but we have had uses for it ourselves on exterior surfaces and it worked quite well and stayed in-situ much longer than we expected! (As usual always test or trial areas before you go on with a large job if you plan to experiment on exterior applications.)
Contact Paper is really washable and durable, so if you want to use it on an old tired kitchen bench then go for it! Once applied treat the covered surface as you would normally eg no hot pans etc and you will have long lasting serviceable preparation area. Cover wardrobe shelves and you will have a lovely smooth surface that is easy to dust and clean. A great idea for caravans and holiday homes where a spruce up is needed at a heavily reduced cost. Use it on laminated walls and doors!
Now onto the creative side of things...Check out the images below. A recent project completed by Kristina from The Painted Hive shows a wonderful fireplace hearth transformation. You can visit her blog and see her clever ideas and get the step by step guides on her makeovers by visiting her website. Images are supplied by The Painted Hive. And product used in this project is DC 200-2256 Marble Light Grey supplied by us!
Ivana from Sydney decided to cover her kitchen splash backs and cupboards and was excited to see that the transformation was better then she expected! She used a variety of gloss contact paper colours to transform her kitchen!
Contact Paper is online and the full stocked range can be seen at our Miranda store. You can buy it by the metre or by the full roll and the black and white gloss and matt contact papers are available in both 45cm and 90cm wide. When we send it to you we always send continuous lengths and it always comes rolled inside a cylinder or box. This way you have a crease free length to work with and all designs have a gridded peel off backing that has centimetre measures to use for accurate cutting! We also recommend buying the film applicator that has a handy smoothing tool and a snap blade knife inside so you can easily smooth bubbles out!
Tip: lightly spray the surface with a a fine mist of water and small amount of baby shampoo in an atomizer. This allows you to smooth away small air bubbles easier! As usual always test a small area before you start the big project.
