- A couple updated their laundry cupboards using $7 adhesive paper from Kmart
- The simply DIY saved them thousands and only cost $30
An Australian couple have transformed the look of their laundry on a budget using an affordable $7 product from Kmart.
Sharing before and after images to a popular Facebook group, the laundry cupboards were an outdated cream colour but were turned into something new within hours.
Rather than replacing all the cupboards Gail and her husband applied sheets of adhesive film to the surface, which cost just $30 in total using about four rolls.
‘We (well mostly hubby) used the Kmart $7 contact to redo the laundry cupboards,’ Gail wrote on Facebook.
The product has also been used to update kitchen benches, coffee tables, cabinets and shelves.

The simple DIY swiftly caught the attention of others part of the Facebook group who said the update looked ‘fantastic’ and ‘so great’.
‘It’s amazing how one little roll of contact can make a HUGE world of difference. Fabulous,’ one Kmart fan wrote.
‘Great job and I love your laundry. All those cupboards, wow!’ another said.
A third added: ‘Would look even more stunning with new black straight edge handles.’
‘Cabinets now cost a bomb and getting someone in to do a smaller custom job ($8k) is almost impossible!’ another said, pointing out the money saved.

‘Genuine question.. will that not peel in a laundry?’ one woman asked, and Gail replied: ‘That’s what we think will happen but decided to try.’
But another woman confirmed she didn’t have a problem at all.
‘Mine stayed on a laundry cupboard over two years, probably still on it, we sold it not long ago,’ she wrote.
