If you don't see a get in touch with paper that attract you, have a look at the pre-pasted plastic wallpaper. You will have a gorgeous make over quickly and also affordably. If neither of these suggestions attract you, round up some brown paper bags and also wall paper paste. Cut the bags right into pieces and also wad up the paper and also saturate in the paste; stretch across the vanity up until it is completely covered. You can leave it natural or tarnish with Minutes Wax. Spray a poly surface on it after it dries and also you will have a vanity that seems natural leather and also is durable.
