backsplash ceramic tiles and drywall

Hi everyone,

I would like to install a backsplash ceramic tile near my oven. However, I painted the drywall last year. How do I prep the drywall? Is there a special cement and grout I need to buy at Home Depot?

Any responses will be greatly appreciated!

If it's real glossy, you might take some sandpaper to the paint a little bit.

Use Versabond thinset from HD to set the tiles.

Have fun.
