Hi, I'm pretty new to the whole DIY thing having finally realised a dream and bought a house in Bulgaria that I am having renovated.
I have had the bathroom done with metro tiles and an old fashioned look and I would dearly love to paper it with Cath Kidston wallpaper. Sadly they don't do vinyl versions and all other vinyl wallpaper I've seen is really not what I'm after at all!!
Although I'm aware that it would be expensive would it be possible to paper the walls then seal it with some sort of matt varnish or other sealant to protect it from the damp?
Am I completely crazy or can my wish come true?!
I have a similar project which I hope to do sometime which will involve papering a room with maps. I've been advised that matt varnish or waterproof PVA would be the things to try although as Paul says they may not be completley clear or smooth so try a bit on a sample first to make sure you're happy with the finish.
