What are people's opinions on wainscoting over tile? I'd like to do this in my bathroom. Thinking about the most economical way possibly to give my bathroom a little lift. Good idea?

That is an excellent idea. I would remove the tile though. Also, you can get epoxy based paint for potty splashes, (I got red-tagged on a city ispection and the inspector taught me this).

New cabinetry, paint and lighting will be less messy and more cost effective than attempting to rip out all the tile, putting in new drywall and wainscotting overtop. I think that for the same price or lower you could replace the medicine cabinet with a beautiful mirror and the vanity. If you do not want to replace the vanity, you can update the handles.

I am trying to steer clear from that messy/time consuming job of removing tile. I've hear it's possible to put it over tile with 1/2 inch plywood, cut in two inch strips screwed into the studs. Also, what do you mean by potty splashes?
