Did you use 3/4 inch for the backsplash? I think standard countertop width is 1 1/2 inch which is pretty thick.My granite guy said he could grind it down to 3/4 inch if needed . I definitely want him to do that. It sure would be easier not to have to remove the beadboard. The top of the backsplash will come up to my window sill. I think it will stick out 1/4 inch past my window sill if we don't remove the beadboard. Think it will look OK?
