Kitchen backsplash/drywall replacement
Hello all. I'm replacing a kitchen backsplash that I tiled 20 +/- years ago. I tried to remove the tile without damaging the sheetrock with not much luck. So I will need to replace the sheetrock also, which isn't a big deal. Except I was wondering about the joints. If I cut and remove the old sheetrock right at the bottom of the wall cabinets, and at the top of the base cabinets, how in the heck would I do those joints? No room there to tape or apply joint compound. Since I'm going to apply tile over the top again, would it be ok not to tape those joints, maybe just apply a bead of caulk and squeeze it into the joint?
Thanks to all for any suggestions.
