Make over

Our bathroom was in desperate need of a make over. The linoleum was peeling up in the corners and had a 60's feel, mottled in blue and cream. I took out the toilet and wedged a screwdriver under the old stuff and hammered until I had a big enough piece to pull. Then pull and tug and pull some more. Under the linoleum was some tile laid down by black glue. I opted to tile over this because I didn't know if it contained asbestos. I found this advice on the web. "When asbestos flooring needs replacing, install new floor covering over it, if possible."
And down there in that second picture.... Yeah, the wall wasn't painted behind the toilet. My neighbor and husband laid the tile. Thanks! I love it.
