I really disliked the 1980s patterns on the walls of my Minnie Winnie.  I went to WalMart and purchased three rolls of Contact Paper in the black and white speckled granite pattern along with two rolls of Contact Paper floral patterned tape to use as trim.  It was easy to put up, has held up very well and is washable.  I started in the bedroom and liked it so much that I ended up doing the bathroom and kitchen, too.  What do you think?

Hi, Todd!  The contact paper is alright, but it is starting to "bubble" in some places and I find myself having to smooth out those "bubbles" every once in a while.   It got so bad in the bedroom that I finally pulled everything down and decided to prime and paint in there.  I think the cold temperature in the bedroom might have had something to do with it.  BUT the kitchen and the bathroom still look nice so I am keeping the contact paper in there.

The walls look great! My wife and I were just talking about the walls in Eddie IV. How is the contact paper holding up after 3 or 4 months.
