Easy and Cheap Under the Sink Style

Our area under the sink has some water damage but we don't plan on replacing the cabinets for a good 5 years or so. It also doesn't look very pretty under there so here's a quick and cheap way you can give that space some style while also helping to protect the wood from future water damage.

I went to the flooring department at Lowe's and grabbed some vinyl squares that have the sticky backing. There were probably about 10-15 different styles to choose from but I wanted the cheapest thing possible. Let's be real, I'd rather have a big comfy couch then a glamorous under the sink space! These were the cheapest I could find at $0.38/each and I picked up 10 of them just incase I needed extras.

You can see the water damage on the base and the sides. These will help protect that base and also not make you cringe when you reach in there to grab your cleaning products!

Before taking off the backing, I started off by laying out the squares to see how they would all fit and decide where the cuts would need to be.

 Make a small mark where you'll need to make your cut. We did this with a utility knife.

Make sure you're not cutting these right on your floor or counter. Place something underneath first. Then use a metal ruler to guide you while you make your cut. We used the same utility knife.

Keep repeating this process with the rest of your squares and before you know it you'll be done!
