A quick picture update after all. I have removed the granite and tile backsplash and replaced some of the sheetrock that was destroyed in the process. I need to throw on another coat of mud and I will be ready for granite and tile. The guy is coming over on Thursday to make the template for the granite.
The doors are scheduled to arrive the first week of July and I had planned to paint everything at once. The cabinets will be easier to paint without the tile and granite so I may bite the bullet and paint them instead of waiting on the doors.
