Much like my sister Kristen, I too have a fondness for Contact Paper. I prefer to use it to add some life to my drab walls!
This was my color scheme for the past two years, however I am dreadfully tired of this combo-so I passed the paper (a roll which seemed to never end!) onto a colleague. But in the past it served me well! I really like how student work and word walls pop when the paper is on there. I have learned to move slowly when applying this to walls, especially on hot days! I'm eternally thankful that it can unstick too, once stuck, otherwise the roll would have disappeared a long time ago!
It even sticks to bulletin boards and chalkboards! I used it this year to cover up all of these boards:
The top two pictures are of chalkboards and the bottom is a cork bulletin board. It really worked great on those surfaces too!
My walls tend to be a cream brick color so I really like how the green popped in the past. This year I am thinking of a new look - I'm leaning towards black Contact Paper and some colored Washi Tape (rather than the borders that have a tendency to leap off my walls every weekend!!) so I am eagerly awaiting everyone's classroom reveals to get some ideas and inspiration for my room!
Thanks for stopping by!
