A roll of marble contact paper to give your boring kitchen counters a makeover. It’ll look like you’ve bought completely new countertops — don’t worry: we won’t share your brilliant DIY secret!


Promising review: “I used it as a cheap, temporary cover for my bathroom counters. I hated the original countertop. Replacing is not in the budget right now. This made for a quick and easy change from the current counter. It has only been a week, but is so far holding up. I am not too worried if it does not last long, it was cheap and I had extra. I would think this would be perfect for a rental where you cannot do permanent updates to the property.” –Fiddlesticks47

Promising review: “To put it simply, I love this piece! I never knew how much I needed a Dutch oven until I bought this one. I use it all the time for soups and chili and my husband loves when I make sausage gravy for breakfast and I can easily do it all in just this pot. And the color is an added bonus. I just leave it right on one of the shelves in our kitchen because it’s so cute and because I just use it that often that it’s nice to have handy.
