How do I camouflage really gross wall tile?

Answered
The walls of the entire bathroom and kitchen of my new apartment are covered with 4x4” tile squares. The original color was pinkish flesh but they were painted white and the paint is peeling in some areas, so it’s extra gross. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on adhesive wallpaper or time on shiplap. Looking for ideas for a quick and low cost fix. Hiding the pipes would be a bonus! Thanks for any suggestions!

    I did mine so long ago& get many good compliments on it. Rough up the tile, add an adhesive so the paint stays, paint then use a sealer to seal it.

    Chalk paint will work on tile. I'm not sure if you're looking to paint tile in a shower, but if not, check this out.

      Good luck! I ordered some talc and calcium carbonate to make mine. I'm a penny pincher, so I figured I'd try making my own, too.

    The adhesive should be placed on the wall & then painted. Do not add the adhesive or mix it to the paint.

    Since this is an apartment. What ever you do make sure you get permission from the landlord in writing. You don't want to jeopardize you security deposit or be sued.
