Bathroom Remodel help

Hey guys, I'm going to be remodelling my bathroom and am looking for some advice. I'm mechanically inclined (excellent with eletronics and automotive repair), but I'm not much of a carpenter.

Attached are some pics of the current state of the bathroom. When we bought the house EVERYTHING was covered in wallpaper. As you can see I've peeled off most of the wallpaper from the top of the walls, the bottom sections of the wall were covered in a type of....I don't know how to explain it. It looked like fake tiling and was made of some kind of particle board or something.

My current idea is to remove the rest of the wallpaper and paint the top half of the walls, then replace the nasty old wall covering on the bottom with something like this:

Now what would I even use to attach that "tileboard" stuff to the walls?

Any ideas/thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

The 'tileboard' you are considering to replace the old 'tileboard' is essentially the same thing as you removed, but it will cover the mess you now have. Other possibilities are tile, beadboard, etc. That tileboard will not work inside the shower.

yeah the old tileboard was really nasty looking. I want to replace it with some fresh looking tileboard.

as for the shower area I'm going to do that in some of that plastic wall panelling designed for showers.

what type of adhesive should be used to secure new tileboard to a wall? are there any tips/tricks to getting it right?
