Get The Stainless Look Without The Stainless Budget

Stainless steel is probably one of the most popular kitchen elements today. However, these appliances can be expensive and don’t necessarily clean any better than non-stainless appliances.

And now, there’s no need to pay the price. Blogger Julie Blanner has given homeowners everywhere the greatest gift: a DIY stainless makeover solution for under $10!

Pick up these materials:

  • Stainless Steel Contact Paper
  • Scissors
  • Razor Blade
  • Credit card (not just to buy the supplies!)

Begin by cutting the contact paper 3 inches longer than the length of the dishwasher. Open the (empty and clean) dishwasher and start at the edge. Line the contact paper up with the top and start peeling the paper an inch at a time. Begin applying the stainless contact paper from top to bottom, smoothing it out with a credit card along the way. Make sure a partner holds the tension on the paper to eliminate the majority of bubbles.

To finish it up, cut any excess paper off and let the paper meet with the bottom edge of the appliance. Following application of the paper, smooth out any bubbles remaining with a credit card.
