Question

replacing wallpaper in bathroom


I'm in the process of removing old wallpaper in my small bathroom. I was surprised to find that the paper goes all the way behind the vanity. I don't want to have to remove the vanity just to remove that old wallpaper, or to put the new paper up, but it's very difficult to get to the leftover paper that goes into the invisible areas behind that vanity in order to get the new paper there. Any suggestions appreciated!

You just need to cut the old paper with a razor knife and cut the new to the edge.

if the vanity is screw mounted to the wall, you should be able to unscrew it and move it slightly from the wall to be able to remove and replace the wallpaper without having to take it off completely. if you only move it a half inch, it should not affect the pipes or drains at all, but be careful.
