I'm currently in the process of doing a kitchen renovation and I'm building new benches and tops and the old wall tiles have to go. I've ripped the old tiles off the wall, they were attached in what I assume was a very old way of doing it. A wire mesh was nailed to the wall and then an inch of concrete was applied to the mesh and the tiles were then glued to that. The wall is just a plaster wall. Can I simply glue the tiles to the plaster wall or should I replace the plaster with some other material?
Obviously I'm a novice at this, so any help or advice would be much appreciated.
