Lightbulb What to use to cover existing tub tile?

I have a bathroom that the tile is beginning to get loose and come off. I am planning on moving out of this house and renting it. I need to fix this before I rent out and am not sure what to do. I am looking at the most cost effective method as money is an issue....or lack of that is....I want to do this right but will do a quicky that will last a yr or so. Any information or suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

If tile is inside tub/shower area, they make fiberglass and plastic wall surrounds which can cover over the walls. If tile problem is on the side of a built-in tub, you can over over with a piece of paneling or furniture grade plywood and paint. In that event, it may be better to remove the tile, taking into consideration any lip on tub. A piece of molding will likely need to be installed to cover the gaps. Of course, water and wood don't make for a good mix. I do, however, see tubs built-in with beadboard. I would paint with oil-based enamel paint for better protection of the wood. Caulk gaps where trim is installed with paintable silicone caulk to prevent water penetration.
