Well I'm beyond the point of no return. I took out our white tile backsplash today. It was pretty easy-the tiles kind of popped off. It was like they wanted to be off the wall. We are having granite countertops installed soon. Than we'll move on to the tile floors. I have mixed feelings on losing my vintage kitchen. I definitely will NOT miss the tile countertops. Those should be outlawed!! Anyway, I haven't decided on what to do as a new backsplash yet. If anybody out there has a great idea, please share. I'm kind of between white subway tile or possibly leaving it blank.
We have white cabinets in the kitchen now. I'll update as this project goes along.
