Install Countertop before or after existing cabinets are painted
I will be having my cabinets handpainted as a "green" (ecologic and economic) alternative to ripping out perfectly good, functional cabinets. I am also replacing my grotty laminate countertop with granite and ripping out old backsplash with a new tiles to complement the new countertop. I have been getting conflicting advice about which order these should be done. Which job should be done first, second and last?
