Smart Tiles*at The Home Depot
I recommended those to someone else on the forum awhile back.. IMHO. they hold up really well. Dont know why peeps would say the movement of the coach would shake them loose when its a flexable system and hard tiles mounted with hard mortar would crack fall much, much easier..

We're very satisfied and would use this product again.
Awesome looking!

Any suggestions on how to remove the adhesive that is left on the wall board from the original border? I tried Goof Off, and it took the color off the wall board. It's not regular wall paper glue. I had to use a hair dryer to remove the border.

The key to the project was to thoroughly clean the wall with a degreaser and let it dry. There was no need for additional adhesive. While placing the tiles we've actually removed and restuck the same tile with no indication of them loosening. Key is to take your time and cut carefully cut the tiles.

Good Luck & post your picture

I cut the tiles flush with the edge of the wood.

Might need something a little hotter than a hair dryer..
