But this DIY whizz decided to transform her kitchen without making and permanent, and expensive, changes.
Rachel Kathleen, from Salt Lake City, Utah, wanted to freshen up her kitchen, but had limited options as a renter.
She decided to switch things up by changing her kitchen worktop with this handy hack.
Instead of breaking the bank buying new worktops, she used contact paper, which she stuck on top of the old counters.
“before was great, but didn’t really fit my style,” she explained.
“I warmed things up with removable Faux Butcher Block Contact Paper.
The old grey worktops were smart enough, but a bit outdated and dull for Rachel’s taste.
She chose a more modern wooden style contact paper that made the space look instantly more posh and expensive.
“After 9 months of heavy use, I’d still choose to do this again.
“There are so many other patterns and styles out there to choose from, including faux marble!”
Other keen DIY-ers loved the simple hack too.
One commented: “We did this after I saw your post about it awhile back and I LOVE it so much.”
Another said: “My gosh it looks heavenly !!!! You really increased their kitchens value.”
Not everyone was so convinced though, one said: “Never had luck with countertop stickers. But yours look amazing!”
Another quipped: “When we bought our house, they had contact paper over the original counters. It was a pain to remove!”
