Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me

This was suppose to be a happy, jubilant post about home improvement.
 I had been wanting this product for a couple of years now.  I finally ordered it and it came this week. (I got 2, one for each downstairs bathroom).  I thought I would start in my bathroom first so I would have my technique perfected for the guest bath.
 It was to hid this unsightly plunger and toilet brush.  I had planed and planed, reading reviews and watching youtube installation videos.  I was so ready.  I measured and remeasured.  I picked the perfect wall, no outlets, nothing on the other side of the wall but a short hall, all the plumbing should be behind the toilet..
 Look how excited I was to even take a picture of the product when I took it out of the box.  Then I cut the opening...
 WHAT?!?!  WHY IS THERE A PIPE THERE?  WHAT'S THAT PIPE EVEN FOR?
Now I'm just depressed.  I have a massive hole in the drywall to fix, no where else in the bathroom suitable for it (not like I want to cut another gaping hole in my walls), and I will probably have to repaint the entire room, FOR NOTHING!

Oh no. Ugh. We had to cut a huge hole in the wall to replace a leaky shower pipe. Didn't wanna cut into the ceramic tiles in the shower. Went to Home Depot got a spring loaded hole cover thingy.
Good luck.
