Want the new look of a paint job without all the commitment? Contact paper is temporary peel-and-stick covering that works on almost any surface—including plastic, wood, metal, and painted walls. This paper mimics the look of stainless steel, so it's a perfect way to refresh a tired backsplash, update cabinet fronts, or makeover a dated dishwasher or microwave. The vinyl material is washable and stain-resistant, too, so this clever cover-up can stand up to any kitchen mess. Available at The Home Depot; $12.97.
