Default She asked if I can wallpaper the cabinet

Well of course I can! Actually, the hardest part of this job was finding the match. The repeat was a straight match at 25.25", but the design has 5 of the patterns within the repeat. I tried to find an identifier, but to the eye they all look the same. The slant ceiling didn't make it possible to just pull to the next repeat, so it was a bit of a challenge.

I can honestly say that in 38 years I've never had anyone request to have their bathroom vanity papered. Chalk that one up for your record books, Gwarel.

Nice work, BTW.

I didn't see any doors. Maybe she's going to use a curtain?

Could have been worse - she might have asked you to also do the toilet.

How long do you figure that is going to hold up? I would guess it's already scrapped up on the edges.

It's probably a powder room like a lot of the big highend homes have these days. It's just to look at, not pee in.

It looks really nice!

In order to make the vanity look like a real center piece, I might be inclined to install and wallcover a board to hide the piping and just leave the opening without doors. it would make a nice little TP display.

Damn! I'm lucky I'm not going in an outhouse most of the time! And there's people with EXTRA crappers? Wth?

Me either. I think it looks pretty cool.
Fun job I would imagine.

If the powder room does get peed on, it's likely going to be by guests and workers (like the painter).

Personally, I would be inclined to be careful with my aim in such a well decorated powder room
