It's time to eliminate my handpainted tiles from the backsplash. I've never taken down tiles from a vertical surface and we've only put down floor tiles. Is it possible to get these off without much wall damage and if there is repair, how hard is it? I am craving some white subway tiles, new paint, new art, reupholstered chairs and THEN I'LL BE HAPPY!!! If there are any really good tutorials out there for backsplashes, send them my way. We're having Thanksgiving and I have my hammer in chisel in hand.
