The cute contact paper was a gift from my mom, who has been my super-cheerleader (and partial funder!) in my projects. I filled the closet with all my craft/sewing/stationery/wrapping stuff, all of which had been stuffed in our bedroom closet. Now John can open our closet door without worrying that a roll of wrapping paper will fall out on him (and they did, all the time! He was constantly cursing their existence. I can buy wrapping paper on clearance with a clear conscience now!).
