    Hi All,.

    Refurbing a flat. Bathroom walls have been painted with green gloss paint.

    I want to tile the walls. Ive read that it needs to be removed so tiles can key to plaster.

    So went at it with an angle grinder with a flap disc attached. See pics of how much Ive take off so far. Is it enough or do I need to get every last bit off? Its very dusty work as soon as the disc hits the skim coat!

    What should I prep wall with before tiling?

    Thanks
