Does anyone know a way to cover tile wall board without removing it. Would painting it look awful?Any other ideas would be helpfull. We are getting our house ready to sell and doing it on a shoe string.

If you have lived with it, why do you need to change it to sell? Post a px.

The tile board I have seen (and used) has a slick surface that would be hard to paint. You might look around to find a type of paint that would work, but if it has the embossed tile pattern it will be difficult to paint and still retain the tile pattern.
