Update your kitchen cabinets How amazing does this look?! Wouldn’t believe it is the same kitchen. Olivia’s kitchen was 70’s faux wood kitchen, which is not an easy one to paint. Unfortunately the same goes for most RVs, so this is one of the handiest ways to give the kitchen a fresh start. See her tutorial here. Find similar white wood grain contact paper on Amazon. 2. Update your kitchen countertop As well as the kitchen cabinets, update your countertops. This beautiful countertop is from a tutorial you can find here. + your dining table Looks nice and fresh. This adhesive vinyl is D-C-Fix Sanremo Oak, find it on Amazon. 3. Update your kitchen backsplash with adhesive tiles Due to the nature of the caravan and RV, traditional tiles don’t really work in a moving home. Here in VinylHome they refreshed an old caravan with peel and stick tiles. What a difference! The tutorial can be found here. More peel and stick ideas from Amazon 4. Update your fridge and other kitchen gadgets Update your fridge with a metallic contact paper like this one from Etsy or go for a funkier look like Grace at Design Sponge (below). DON´T MISS 80 Jaw-Dropping RV Bathroom RenovationsOther good places for adhesive vinyl would be trash cans, washer (if you have one) and even the microwave. Just remember, don’t put it on anything that gets hot! 5. Make memo boards on your kitchen cabinets Never forget anything important ever again! Good place to write down the campground information, emergency contacts or just what’s on the menu tonight. Matilda painted hers but you could also do it with a chalkboard contact paper, which you can find on Amazon.

Add chalkboard adhesive vinyl to their camping table, to a tray, to the RV door, a wall or make a small chalkboard of your own. Endless fun! 7. Use as a shelf liner An instant update and refresher to your shelves. 8. Refresh your floors and the bathroom You can use good quality self-adhesive in wet rooms as well, like this D-C-Fix. (Find on Amazon)If there are any edges that could be exposed to water, seal them with silicone. If you have grout between your tiles, don’t cover them as this vinyl doesn’t breathe through. Another great example from Home Talk of instant refresher. If you are worried about it getting worn out, you could seal it with at least 3 layers of clear polyurethane floor varnish. The countertop tip also works in the bathroom. See Nancy’s tutorial here. 9. Create a feature wall or a ceiling View this post on Instagram A post shared by Liz Kamarul (@liz_kamarul) on May 13, 2018 at 9:44am PDT Sure you can cover all the walls but I really think that Liz Kamarul really rocks this ceiling. prvbsthirtyonegirl did a beautiful job with her travel trailer, see her feature wall below. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Allie (@prvbsthirtyonegirl) on Jun 7, 2019 at 8:30am PDT 10. Get more privacy with window film These are great if you have a big toilet or alcove windows. 11. Update your kitchen labels and storage boxes Stylish kitchen label tutorial is from here. Never lost anything again. Update your labels for organized, stress-free camping. 12. Create cutlery holders from old tin cans With a D-C-Fix tutorial you can upcycle your old food tins and make handy cutlery holder and stop them sliding all over the place. We actually did this in our van in New Zealand, I used rest of the marble self-adhesive vinyl I had leftover from other projects. Fall for Diy used the same idea but did marble planters instead. Cute! 13. Create a travel journal This one is actually from Etsy, but if you have an empty notebook, some old maps and clear sticky back plastic, you could create your own. 15. Update your photo frames and create a gallery wall Update your frames and create cool gallery wall out of your best travel photos. Or if you don’t have the space or you can’t hang any heavy frames, make them with washi tape! 16. Create your own decals Create your own pretty decals like this one. From their page you can download a free svg file too. 17. Update your camping furniture They don’t recommend self-adhesive vinyls to be used outdoors as they will fade in the sun eventually, but if you don’t keep your camping gear out all the time, they should last at least 1-3 years. 18. Vertical Wall Garden What a lovely idea. This is created using plywood board and some old milk cartons, see the tutorial here. In order to save space I would probably do it taller and put the pots under each other to save even more space. 19. Cover your storage boxes with contact paper Get your stuff organised with style. 20. Contact paper key rings for your RV If your RV is anything like ours, you have one key for the cockpit doors, one for living part, one for gas bottle door, one for fresh water etc. With these cute little keyrings you’ll know which one is which. 21. How to use self-adhesive contact paper What tools do I need?Scissors or a cutting knife, ruler or a measuring stick, pen and a plastic smoother. You can buy these ready made in the shops but a bank card or similar will do the job. What kind of surfaces can I put self-adhesive vinyl contact paper on and what preparations should I make?Can be applied on any smooth, dry flat surface. Make sure the surface is clean and free of dust and grease. How to get it on place precisely? Calculate the area you need to get covered carefully. Most self-adhesive vinyls come with a grid on the other side to help you cut precisely. To the edges factor in at least extra 4mm – you can always trim the excess off! To avoid air bubbles, work a bit by bit and start from the middle and work your way to the edges. If you want to get the vinyl over the edges, using a hairdryer will help. Blow with the lowest setting. How do I remove it?Just start from one corner and carefully peel off.
