More years ago than I care to estimate, I put contact-paper style shelf paper on the “main” shelf of the butler’s pantry. Big mistake. And then, time. With a razor blade, I managed to remove it from half the shelf in a couple of hours (max). It was about 40in of shelf. Scrape scrape.
Sometime when my thumb-bruise is gone, I’ll tackle the other half. After T-giving. You can see the edge of the yellowing ancient stuck-stuff over on the left. The new shelf “paper” is plastic. So modern. Not green at all, but I am confident that it will not stick. 😎

Sometimes I wonder if this is a generational thing.. I must have shelf paper/shelf liners on/in all my shelves and drawers….BTW, changing the paper in the stone house this past visit, found newspaper dating back to the 1960s and early 70s… guess it had been awhile!
