      That’s what I meant. Peak and stick flooring is even at dollar general and family dollar stores

    You can spackle the walls. Spackle, let dry, sand to smooth, then paint. Will take several coats of paint. Use gloss or semi-gloss---more water proof. Cardboard cabinets or pressed wood--seal with two coats of matte poly--sand lightly then paint gloss or semi gloss will last longer than flat. It takes time but do it right and it will last a long time.

    Hi Barb, if it is just ugly, go buy the primer KILZ and prime it, from then you can use an alkyd based paint that is more water proof than latex, or buy a high gloss latex, make sure you use silicone or other kitchen and bath caulk at the bottom to seal it, or you can prime and buy the vinyl peel and stick tiles to place there, same thing for painting the cabinets, I know the material you have, you can clean it, prime it and paint with high gloss latex, hope this helps

    If there’s water damage causing things not to stick, address that first.

    Lately people are using dollar store glass beads as a backsplash.
