I have a confession to make.  I’m not always the most patient person.  I thought I could live with black appliances for a year in my all white kitchen, but I barely made it a week.  It just stuck out in the otherwise bright space.  Fortunately, I found a simple and reasonable fix.

1. Cut a piece of contact paper 3″ longer than required.
2. Open your dishwasher {or other appliance} door and start at the edge.  Line the paper up with the top, peeling only an inch or so of the backing off at a time.  Partner 1: Start at the top, slowly working your way to the bottom using the credit card.  This will eliminate most bubbles.  Partner 2: hold onto the contact paper with a little tension to keep the paper from adhering. If you should end up with any large bubbles, just pull back and try again.
3. Once you reach the other side and are happy with your result, trim the excess off with a razor blade.
4. Remove any bubbles working them out with a credit card.
