I have been desperate to get a wardrobe cabinet for our bedroom. I started looking online and found they are very expensive. I was looking for simple and basic cabinet that has enough room to store few clothes and may be a section for guest bedroom linen and towels. So, I started yard sale search and after couple of visits I found a cabinet for $20.
I was very impressed by the price and it was in good shape, right size and has lock too. My husband wasn’t quite happy with the color as it doesn’t match our bedroom furniture. I knew I could turn it to the way we want and was glad that I finally have something to experiment wood staining. It didn’t take long for me to realize that it is laminate wood 😦
However, I didn’t want to miss it and we bought it home. I had an idea to use contact paper(self adhesive liner) and change the color of it. But wasn’t sure if it was practical.
Anyways, I started looking everywhere for the contact paper that matches to the rest of the furniture. After 3 months of search I found @ Biglots for $2( perfectly matches my budget) and it took less than 2 rolls ($3-$4).
Apart from the material, you need a lot of patience and interest in getting it right on the furniture. Below are some of the steps that shows the process.
