Question How to cover up a painted cinder block wall that transitions with drywall

Bathroom wall next to the shower, I'd like to be able to finish like the rest of the bathroom. Two walls:
1. Space between the tile of the shower that is half cinder block half drywall.
2. Space above the tile in the shower that is painted cinder block.

Whats the best way to cover up the cinder block for a finished look?

There are some thin, prefinished panels you can glue to the wall. It would be a different look but I think it's debatable it it's more "finished" look than what you have now. Everything else I can think of won't work well with the transition to your shower because of the thickness. Even gluing up sheetrock without furring the wall is still going to make the transition to the shower odd.

Personally for a partial interior block wall I think it looks good.
