Let me tell you a story: Once upon a time you dreamed you had stainless steel appliances in your kitchen, but no amount of wishing made it so. There was no money and no space to replace, so you said, 'fine, I'm resigned.' (And you rhymed while you pined.)
Then a brilliant idea fell out of the sky — well, no it actually came from a lifestyle blog called Coordinately Yours by Julie Blanner — and it changed everything. As the saying goes, fake it till you make it. Take one last look at that decidedly not stainless-steel dishwasher above, and then prepare to be awed.
Say what? Hold the horses and stop the races. That's looking a little steely to me. How is this possible?
I'll tell you how. Stainless steel Con-Tact paper. There's also similar but sturdier faux steel film.
As Julie writes on her blog, all she did was line the front of her dishwasher with this sticky stainless steel paper, and presto! She had just faked her way to a stainless steel appliance. She says she even fooled her friends and family.
Not too bad for an afternoon project and a few bucks!
Have you ever used stainless steel paper to transform any of your appliances?
