Yes, a designer measured for it. If I would have done it the "right" way, I wouldn't have had enough material. So I had to piece it. I charged extra for the head ache.

and maybe i missed something but did you cut the lengths to size before hanging? i did read you saying the old cupboards would be outta square so if so how'd you get round this as imagine cutting in situ would be a nightmare. i'd be tempted to make a template with some liner paper or similar for each length.
Yes, I had heard from other hangers that there was no way you could cut it straight, and that the seams would always show just a bit. So I figured it would be smart to take a couple minutes to do the color-coordinated prime. I used a square and a cheap angle finder like the one below to figure the edges.

I know you're a master but I had a trick I can share with you. I'm not a paper hanger but have done similar stuff with near impossible to cut materials that had a backing.

For odd shapes I usually make a rosin paper template but it appears you have that already covered. But for the cut I marked my line on the backside of the material, then clamped down a T square (or thick metal 4' ruler) and took my cordless dremel and just lightly cut into the materials about a third to halfway through guiding the side of the wheel with the vertical face of the ruler, then finished it off with the utility blade. The material ends up snapping real clean like sheetrock and it's fast and you don't go through many blades. Maybe that would help you if you come across some particularly stubborn material.

I also like to keep a bunch of primed 1/4" hemlock quarter round in my shop for things like glass mosaic tile, just paint it, put it in front of a fan, and you can border anything without a nailer, just a handheld brad setter, and it looks purrfect every time!

nice work dude, that's my two cents...

Yes, If I had more to do, or if it included intricate molding or whatnot, I would have used some bare vinyl to make templates. But since it was such a small job, I figured I would wing it with the tools I mentioned above.

I thought that was probably the case. I just wondered if the glass had a 'rain drop' effect and would have looked odd. It's not always easy to see that kind of thing from photos.

I love those interior designers. They know it all and know nothing

Just lisp when you speak and hold your hips a lot.

Just about to spec this myself for a bathroom refit. Not sure which one yet but i'm leaning towards the Geode like you did but in the gunmetal finish

This week's job...-beadazzledselection.jpg

Quickly dismissed the Bauble as install strikes the fear of god in me

This week's job...-beadazzledbauble.jpg

in fact whilst posting this i've just snapped the sample in half :opps:

This week's job...-beadazzledbauble2.jpg


Question for you though, seeing as you colour matched the wall. Did you manage to get a colour off romanoff or did you just do it by eye?

I seem to remember you using this on a bar too, or did I imagine that?
