A neighbor near us hired a local handyman to removed the 30 year old tile backsplash. The adhesive behind the aging tiles was very hard to remove. The handyman said he would return to finish the job the next day. Since they paid him up front for the job, he decided that the job was too hard to finish. He never returned.
This post shows the eight steps to repair the wall damage from a removed tile backsplash.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows some of the tools used to do this project.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows everything was removed from the counter top. Placing the newspaper or Kraft paper on the counter top will protect the top from getting scratched. Fig.3 shows a inexpensive chisel used to remove the brown adhesive from the kitchen wall. Fig.4 shows the electrical cord is out so the sander can reach all the areas of the kitchen. Here we are using a Porter-Cable 5" Random Orbit Sander. You will also need extra disks hook loop discs 60 grit is what was chosen for this job. Purchase a contractor's pack and get the best deal.

Step 6: Prior the texturing the wall, several coats of joint compound was applied and sanded flat. Fig.8 through fig.10 shows the application of orange peel texture once the wall was repaired and now is flat. Applying texture hide the wall imperfections.
