What options do I have for updating a tin backsplash?

The tin backsplash is glued to the wall. I would make a horrible mess of things if I tried to remove it. Any suggestions on how to update it/paint it/cover it, etc. ?

    Hi there yep you could always paint it. If it is real tin just make sure and use a paint specifically made to cover metal.

      Well, you could cover it you will just need to find the studs than you could cover it with sheet rock or beadboard or any kind of wood etc. The only issue is that it would create more of a height difference that you would have to compensate for but on the edges you could add molding to cover that up.

    Get in touch, if you can, with the manufacturer of the tin back-splash. Send them photos if you can, and what the back-splash has been painted/coated with. Or Google. But I think the manufacturer, or go to your local hardware shop and tell them what the problem is.
