Stainless Steel Contact Paper Table Top Makeover

98K Views
Rolling table with cheap veneered probably particle board. I'm using this table to test the product before I go big and cover the range vent and construct a faux stainless flute. I've seen prices of $900 and up for ones I like.
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $5-8 Difficulty: Easy
Clean surface and if not absolutely smooth, then take a 400 grit sand paper as I did to give perfect surface prep.
I found this on on the road and love great multipurpose rolling tables. This one had only 3 horizontal braces near the base, so you can pull a chair all the way up for eating, computer use, etc.

Go for it. Some adjustability is required to remove and smooth if you get creases or bubbles. I recommend unrolling slowly and smoothing while pealing paper because it's a very tacky surface.
To smooth, I refused to buy "their tool." I tried a few: the back and edge of this comb is my fave for a large area. You could also use a kitchen plastic cutting board clearer (if that lost you, I have also seen Rachael Ray use them on her show), credit card (but that would be harder to use).
This is the first brand I have tried. I would like to try the reusable kind I found in a YouTube video to compare.
Supply list: cleaner (your preference, I used multi surface), cleaning tag, drying rag, scissors, smoothing tool (I tried a few...you can buy one...lol...we wouldn't be on this site of we did that). This comb was the perfect size and I used back edge and the back corner edge.
New stainless top looks awesome!! Corners and edges are harder. Cut to over lap or cut out to make flush.
I prepped an end table last night to update and will use stainless for top and front panels. Will post finished product if interested then I will design my vent hood. Has anyone used different brands or the reusable type?

    I wonder how it would work for a backsplash?

      Shari, I love this idea. Did you give it a try? If so, please share how it turned out.

    I used this same contact paper to cover my freezer. I had gotten new stainless steel appliances and my small freezer stuck out like a sore thumb. So I covered it everyone was asking where did you get the matching stainless steel freezer from. They
