I had to knock out a block of tiles behind my new toilet install because the rough in was a little short. The tiles are a horrible pink and black checkerboard and the previous owner painted them (project for another day).
But... since I have bare wall now, what should I do to seal the edges and surface. There are some gouges from scraping off the adhesive. I'm thinking maybe I should use spackle or some other drywall compound, caulk the edges, then prime/paint? Or should I build up the raw tile edge better with something to keep them stable? I'll remove the tank while I'm working on the wall.
