I’m so happy to report that the wallpapering of the pink tile bathroom is finished.
Working around the room clockwise I finished the 4th and final wall.
The 4th wall had both a doorway and showerhead to paper around. The doorway was not difficult because the width of paper from the wall to the door covered the entire space. It was just a matter of trimming the excess away.
I thought I would have to cut a slit down from the top of the paper to accommodate the showerhead like I did on lighting fixture on wall 3.
Instead I made a slit from the side because the previous piece butted up against the shower fixture. None of the cut shows.
When I tucked the last piece into the beginning corner and trimmed the excess I was elated.
We’re not finished yet but the bulk of the tedious work, tile and wallpaper, is finished.
Tomorrow I’m going to try my best to finish hanging the pink tile bathroom wallpaper.
I have only 4 pieces remaining.
Also hoping Charlie will reset the toilet in the same room. He removed it earlier in the week and wrestled it into the tub so it wouldn’t be in my way.
In the mean time Sug has ordered a dog run which will be delivered on Monday. We’ll try to set it up when we get home from work. She selected one with a cover because we have hawks, eagles, and vultures in the neighborhood which might get an idea to attack our small dogs.
Hoping to have a fruitful weekend. Wishing it were longer.
Working around the room clockwise I’m now on the third wall over the sink. I could not find instructions on the internet for papering a small zigzag corner so here’s how I did it.
First I had to make the turn from the second to the third wall. The corner, as in many bathrooms, is an inside corner-outside corner-inside corner wall section which I presume houses the plumbing vent stack. This area is often out-of-square as was mine.
With about a half inch on the left, I cut the paper to cover the entire housing to about an inch beyond the second inside corner. Using the leftover cut I pasted it over the allowance on the right-hand wall using a plumb-line to insure this first piece of paper on the wall is straight.
The second and third pieces on the wall had to be cut around a wall-mounted lighting fixture. First, the fixture was loosened from the wall to reveal the bracket.
Measuring from the end of the previous piece of paper to the screw, I made a straight cut from the top of the paper the same width as the screw placement.
While Sug held the dangling fixture away from the wall I carefully hung and trimmed the wallpaper around the bracket matching my cut above the bracket. The next piece was applied in likewise fashion measuring the screw distance from the previous piece and cutting a slit from the top down to the screw.
