mount cabinet on porcelain wall


Hi
Just tiled my whole bathroom and was not planning to install medicine cabinet. Now I have to install a medicine cabinet for she who must be obeyed. I used a 3/16th Diamond core bit from lowes to install tp holder and towel rack. While spraying water from a bottle the holes cut like going through wood on seconds slower. Then I used those plastic anchors. If I go to a larger core and anchors would the porcelain support a medicine cabinet? Togglebolts? There is one stud will run down the middle.

The porcelain tile is mounted to Johns Manville 1/2" Go-Board (I love that stuff).

I am stuck and I do not want to deprive her since she really wants one now.
Thanks,
Jimmy

I would go with the toggles but if you are really nervous about that open the wall from the other side and put blocks in.

Thanks, I never used Porcelain on a wall. I know it is strong but was not sure about the togglegbolts. It would be tough to go through back. I don't think I would need anything but maybe a 1/4-20 bolt on the top and maybe the bottom.

When in doubt over kill is always an option.
