DIY Kitchen Countertop Makeover With Contact Paper (HD)

I wanted to change my countertop but because I rent, there wasn't to many option. I had to make sure whatever I put, came off without damaging (even though they were already somewhat damaged) the existing countertops. I also had to keep it on a budget. Contact Paper is a great alternative. DO NOT PUT HOT POTS OR PANS ON IT. DO NOT CUT DIRECTLY ON SURFACE! It only takes 2 seconds to grab a cutting board. 🙂
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me in the comment section below and if you recreate any of my DIY's Please tag me on Instagram or Twitter so I can see them.. you can find my links at the the bottom of this description box.

UPDATE: It's been two months and it still looks great! I have had water, juice and other stuff spill on it and nothing has happened to it. It is also very easy to clean. No lifting at corners or anywhere! The only thing left is to see if it comes off as easy as it clams it does but that will have to wait until I move or get bored with it. I will update when either one happens. 🙂

Items I used
1.) I bought Contact brand, Black & White Marble contact paper. I had a small counter so only used one roll and almost didn't have enough so make sure to measure your countertop first!
I bought mine from a seller on Amazon but they no longer carry it. If you Google “Contact Brand Marble Contact Paper” you'll find some.
2.) Utility Knife
3.) Card
4.) Scissors

A tiny bit about myself:
Hi, my name is Ivelisse. I was born on October 26th, 1977. I've been artistic and creative my whole life. Unfortunately, it wasn't an easy one. I'm a survivor of many trials and tribulations. But, it caused me to have serious mental health issues. I was self-medicating by using drugs and alcohol for over twenty years. On August 1st, 2014, I threw myself at the mercy of the Lord and prayed to be saved. I've been sober and clean ever since. In Jesus's name, amen! With this new life, I started living for the first time since I was a little girl. I started with my health and fitness. Soon after, I found myself itching to get back to my passion! My art! But, I didn't just want to do it for myself. I wanted to share that joy with others. Not long after, I created my YouTube channel DIY No Need To Cry! I took the very bottles that were killing me and started to turn them into art. It's also a place where I get to share what I know and learn from others along the way. I also wanted to create a fun and safe space. I'm a very dorky person, and if I could make just one person smile, in a world full of hardships, if only for a brief moment, in a world that can be very cruel at times, then I wanted that opportunity. Now with each piece I create, I replace a bad memory and create new ones with all of you! Welcome to the crafty fam! God bless you all!
