Has anyone painted over a granite backsplash?

We bought our house a year ago. The kitchen has black granite countertops and backsplash - the kind with gold flakes in it. It's not our taste, but we can't afford to replace it right now, and we don't know if it can be removed without damaging the cabinets and walls. The backsplash is too dark for the kitchen and "swallows" all the light, and their choice of wood tones doesn't match it either. I plan on painting the cabinets either white or dark gray. Has anyone ever painted over granite? Would it be tacky?
