Kitchen tile backsplash??


Is it ok to install ceramic tiles onto existing painted drywall backsplash? Or does it need to be prepared w/ something?

Thanks v.m.

stick them on with mastic should be fine.
clean with TSP or equal to remove any grease residue first.

also, give it a rough sand w/ 80 grit sand paper. Then wipe clean with a damp rag.
Good Luck
