Hello Cheryl and thank you for joining our How-to Community.

 

I would suggest using peel and stick type of wall tile instead of the regular ceramic.

 

Depending on the condition of the vinyl coating on the vinyl wallboard you could experience problems during the drying process of the mastic. Once the surface is saturated with mastic and heavy tile vinyl paper may simply peel off the surface of the wallboard.

 

Hope this helps, and please do not hesitate to post back with any additional questions you may have.

 

George
