You are correct. That is the shower curtain. Hard to take pictures of such a small space!
Yes, the counter top and the wall to the left of the sink (as you face it) is laminate (black and white speckled stuff to match the floor).
The walls where painful. I am very glad I did it, and I would do it again, but still painful.
I tried many paint strippers, but the only one that worked well enough for me was a product by Zinsser (see picture)
Put it on nice and thick, and wait about 20 min. Mostly the wall covering comes off in big sheets by just pulling it or helping it along with a wide PLASTIC drywall knife (putty knife). Then clean the walls with Acetone to get the residual glue off.
DON'T WAIT TO REMOVE THE GLUE with the Acetone. If you let it sit over night (or say, a week like I have) its 100 times harder to get off. If you do it right away, it wipes right off.
This is nasty stuff, and literally burns the skin on contact. It also eats plastic lenses on your glasses when it drips on them, even for a second. (don't ask).
As others have said, be sure to cut along seams where the inner skin overlaps. The wall coverings are put on prior skins being put on.
But, if you like the look (and I really do, very clean) don't let any of that stop you.
