Protecting Dry wall above the shower


I have a shower stall and above it drywall. I would like to protect the drywall above the stall. what are my option. I would like to keep it simple.
The shower stall is high so we are talking about some water spash from time to time. I just striped the wallpaper off, it's been there for over 10 year but noticed small signes of water damage

Protecting Dry wall above the shower


a good oil base paint/primer

drywall is drywall and there isn't much you can do to waterproof it. you did however point out exactly why tile showers are so popular aside from cosmetics

Protecting Dry wall above the shower


I did look into tile but the cost for such a small space seemed a little to much
