I also have lots of white contact paper, even after this project. So I made the fronts of the desk drawers white. Subtle, yet moving in the right direction. No, this is not rocket science DIY.
And instead of buying new white doors for my big, huge Effektiv cabinet (~50 Euro), I covered those up, too. Thankfully contact paper is forgiving when something like this happens:
I almost gave up on this panel, but think it came out well in the end.
Since I've never been a fan of the gargantuan black desk chair back, I slid a white pillowcase over it until I get around to making a proper slipcover for it. I like white pillowcases.
By the way, I'm losing all hope for developing my sewing skills. There are almost no fabric shops in Germany unless you happen to live in Berlin, Munich, or Hamburg. I'm not kidding. There are a handful of online shops, but the prices are a little steep for a beginner sewer. Our local department store has a weensy little corner for sewing type things. Sigh. Guess what I'm doing when we fly State-side for Christmas this year?
Good news: My dad arrives Saturday for a short visit. My mother promises there are some sewing goodies in an extra suitcase... I'm so excited!!
