[mention]ss3964spd [/mention] craziness instead. Considering that the wall is basically 4x8 I can easily throw a sheet of dry wall and it will cover up all of this nonsense. I was planning on changing the baseboard anyway.

[mention]Carbidetooth [/mention] The sink area backsplash concerns me the most mainly because I’ll probably end up having a sliver tile on the top end so I will need sufficient support there. It’s a bit of a mess. I think you were saying to patch larger gaps with drywall and the rest with tape plus joint compound and sand everything smooth. I can take the faucet out to make this easier.

Or could I cut out the existing dry wall and slap on cement board there.

Yes, specifically drywall, PL Premium construction adhesive, fiberglass mesh tape and setting drywall compound, (will be powder mixed with water), because it's stronger.

A deft touch with various widths of drywall knives will achieve a surface that doesn't need to be sanded much, if at all.

If you're not familiar with all I'm talking about, it's not in any "best practice" book and I hesitate to recommend it for someone new to the game. When you write "Slap on cement board" it gives me pause as I don't slap anything up. I assess and calculate what will give result I desire and not compromise my client or me.
It's a jungle fix and comes with a the qualifiers "Your mileage may vary" and CX's notable "worth price paid".
