Decorating a Bathroom

I have a question about decorating my bathroom. I just repainted it and put up a nice clear glass shower door in the tub. The shower/tub enclosure is vinyl and now you can see through the nice clean door. So, I was thinking it would be cute to put some of those non-slip bath tub stick-ups on the sides of the tub enclosure to make it look cute.

However, for the life of me I can't find any nice ones anywhere. Are they just not the style anymore? I guess there are things called 'wallies' which are wall paper like stick ups.. but I don't know if they would be water proof enough to put inside the tub/shower enclosure.

Thanks for any help.

Self-adhesive decor for tub/shower

There have been many forum posts asking about how to remove the stickers and the adhesive residue.

Wallies won't cut it unless you put them up with Liquid Nails or some other super adhesive. You will have to find something SPECIFICALLY designed for your application. Indirect moisture is brutal on wallpaper. Wallies and the other products mentioned in the links provided by pmgca, are actually small pieces of wallpaper. Direct moisture+indirect moisture present inside a shower insert will be murder. That is forgetting the fact that they will be applied to a slick surface to begin with. You can always give it a shot and let us know how it goes, but I see failure written on this idea.

Smile Wallies & others

Hi Rebecca,

I am surprised with your message!, I guess if we are speaking of the same product.... Sorry if it is not .

I used these products in some homes, in windows and other bath applications without problems. And the manufacturer is giving support for the installation and a guarantee of the product. The one I'm talking is not a wallpaper.

I apologize if I didn't understand the first message of Cynthia Blue.

Respectfully

pmgca,

Sorry if I sounded like a cad with my answer. Not my intention!

I do not have personal experience with Wallies, so if you have used them and know better, please inform me. I just know that the principle of applying "wallpaper" to the inside of a shower will result in failure. Either to the plastic/glass door or the tile/fiberglass inside.

Most wallpaper can withstand a slick surface with no moisture or a porous surface with moisture. Both a slick surface and moisture equals trouble in my estimation.

It make work and prove me wrong though, it happens!!
I also know that Wallies and similar products are fairly inexpensive and even if failure occurs, there isn't much loss. If possible, I would recommend applying these to some surface other than the inside of the shower if at all possible.

Hope that clears up my view on the situation. Best of luck!


***EDIT***

I just went to the Wallies site at http://www.wallies.com/faq.cfm . Here is the advice from the horse's mouth:

Can I hang them in a moist bathroom?
Yes. WALLIES are vinyl-coated so they can be washed and they can withstand the moisture in a bathroom. Just donít put them right in the shower. Direct water flow will cause them to strip off.
