Beginning of the Bathroom

OK, enough about wallpaper for a while. Here are some photos from the beginning of our bathroom renovation.

The bathroom: before.

A pile of the pink plastic tiles we pulled off the wall. The tiles left a substantial layer of hard, dry adhesive behind on the plaster walls.

I own you, floor. Literally.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the hardwood floors from the hallway continued into the bathroom. We didn't bother pulling up the blue linoleum tiles, so we went right at the sub-flooring (fiberboard) with the crowbar.

Here's a shot with a good chunk of the old flooring removed and the tiles off the wall. Notice the lovely blue sink still attached to the wall. This was after we removed the medicine cabinet and toilet paper holder as well.
