Can I Install Wainscoting Over Tile?

Good Questions

0213_gq03a.jpg Q: I wrote in a few months ago about painting my bathroom tile and after all the great comments realized it would be a bad idea. I am now looking at wainscoting over the tile but have no idea where to start. I would leave the tile as-is in the bathtub area because of moisture and water exposure, but cover all the rest. Does anyone have any experience with this? Does it work well for a bathroom? I am looking for some tips and tricks to figure out if this might be my next option. Thanks!

BTW-ignore all the bathroom accessories--we have changed them since this picture. I just want to know how well wainscoting will cover tile.
