Kitchen Backsplash Prep

My sister-in-law asked for an opinion on this. She had glass tile installed in the kitchen and it was done so badly she had the contractor tear it out and replace the sheetrock. She wants to wait 6 months before tiling the backsplash again. My opinion is to paint the sheetrock for now, then, when she is ready, tile over the painted sheetrock.
Is there a better option?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Nothing wrong with painting it now and tiling over it later. It'll just require some sanding to scuff up the paint, which will allow a better bond for the mortar.

Tell her if she's having glass installed, she should make sure the installer uses a mortar made for glass installation. And to never use mastic with glass tile.

The top ten reasons to procrastinate:
