Look Maw – No Faucets!

This wall with wall-mounted faucets over a vessel sink was much easier to paper, because the homeowner removed the faucet handles and spout for me.

If the fixtures had been in place, I would have had to make long relief cuts in the paper, to allow me to manipulate the paper around them. And the paper would have been trimmed to butt up against the faucet and spout. The long cuts and the edges against the metal are all places where there is the possibility of water getting behind the paper and causing curling or peeling.

Instead, with the fixtures removed, I was able to make small cuts so the paper fit neatly right up to the plumbing. And, once the faucets and spout are screwed back on, any cut edges of paper will be tucked safely behind them. No rough edges to look bad, no cut edges to curl up.

Because this wallpaper is a textured vinyl product of a commercial grade, there is no need to worry about the plumbing fixtures damaging the paper as they are screwed snugly back into place.

This faux woven grasscloth is water and stain resistant, and very durable. It is by Thibaut Designs, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.
