Bath plus shower conversion

I recently plumbed my bath to include a shower. I added the piping through the wall inside of the closet on the opposite side. Being that it did not have a shower before, the walls are only tiled about half way up the wall. What would be the best way to protect these walls from water

Here is a pic of the bath where you can see I have added the shower head

Is that green board above the tile? I doubt that it's regular sheet rock.

Pulpo, I would say it is regular sheet-rock. By the looks it seems late late 50's early 60's decor. Lets assume it only sheet rock. So what are experts recommending? Kilz? or some such brush on or cut and replace?

A plastic surround is another idea. I don't know if regular dry wall can be sealed to prevent damage.
