How to get smooth walls in our kitchen


We purchased a 120 year old home a year ago. It’s an old 2 bedroom farm home. We love it! After replacing lots of wood rot, replacing the roof, expanding the tiny bathroom, repairing ceilings, etc., we now want to tackle our kitchen walls. We think there is wallpaper underneath the Sheetrock mud that was put on rather thickly. One wall has vintage yellow tile on the lower half (which I like but my husband doesn’t). Two walls have bead board, which I love. We want to have nice smooth walls to paint. I need some ideas. Hubby thinks it would just be easier to remove all of the sheetrock on the upper walls and replace it. Do you agree? Keep or replace the yellow ceramic tile?
