Wall papering an MDF furniture back

Hi all

I hope someone can help please?

I am a carpenter making a bookcase for a customer. Shelves are Oak which are adjustable so can be removed. However, the back is MDF which was going to be painted, client now wants to wallpaper the back only. Back size is approx 1800 mm high x 1200 mm wide.

I am concerned the back will bow when wallpapered. Could anyone suggest a way of ceiling both sides to avoid bowing? Would 2 coats of Bullseye 123 on both faces achieve this?
Any help gratefully received.

Many thanks


Hi Richard
Bullseye would be perfect i would probably apply 2 coats just to be on the safe side.
