contact-paperHow did we ever get along before Con-Tact® paper? Before that smooth-on-one-side, sticky-on-the-other
vinyl “paper” on a roll appeared, what was covering our kitchen shelves, or lining our utensil drawers? I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, I didn’t exactly have access to a laminating machine, so clear Con-Tact® paper always saved the day whenever I had a particularly stunning art project that needed to be immortalized. Like I said, whatever did we do without it?

Up until a few weeks ago, I never really knew that Con-Tact® Paper came in a wood grain print — did you? It turns out that this less-seen pattern opens up even more possibilities than the regular clear and countryish floral patterns that you normally find at the store. We’ve found that wood grain Con-Tact® paper works particularly well for snazzing up/camouflaging otherwise blah-looking flexible plastic cord covers that are being used on hardwood or laminate flooring.

While there’s nothing wrong with solid-color cord covers per se, the hard truth is that sometimes you just don’t want them standing out against your shiny, cherry-stained flooring. Well, getting them to blend in has just become pretty darn easy. Just cut a strip of Con-Tact® paper that’s wide enough to span the cord cover and wrap a little bit around its edges, peel off the backing, and smooth it into place.
