I'm replacing the plumbing in my bathroom. I took the vanity away from the wall for access to the pipes. When I removed the cabinet, some paint and drywall came with it. The cabinet's back was made of masonite (or something similar) and had bonded to the latex wall paint.
No big problem; I was going to repair/repaint that area anyway. But now I need to put the vanity back :)
I plan on replacing the vanity completely with a pedestal sink in a year or two. I would rather not have to mess with the wall again.
Is there some way I can protect my new drywall and paint from similar damage this time? A plastic sheet? Wax paper? Something else?
