In my quite large bathroom, I want to put a poster (1 m x 0.5 m, a Monet
painting actually) on the wall. Rather than get it framed and hang it, I'm
planning to stick it on to the current surface of the wall, which has two
coats of Dulux Kitchen & Bathroom emulsion on lining paper. Should I use a
thickish wallpaper paste, or would the poster (heavyweight paper, smooth,
non-absorbent) require another type of adhesive?

Quicker and easier would be to get it laminated commercially.
Of go to Ikea and buy a frame. I buy their big frames just for the
glass - cheaper than I can buy it elsewhere.

Wallpaper paste will do it, but you might find the thing wrinkles.
Why not frame it? I should have thought it would look much

I'd have it professionally laminated, choosing a laminate with an adhesive
back if possible. I use that technique for notices in my factories. The
laminator I have that gives adhesive backing only goes up to A4, but I would
be surprised if the professional poster suppliers can't do bigger. They can
certainly go up to at least A0 with non-adhesive ones.
