We are redoing our bathroom. The top half is drywall,the bottom half is tile. We want to remove the tile and go with paint.after removing the tiles, should I cut out the the part where the tile was and replace it with drywall?

That is your best bet. It will be the easiest, fastest, and best way to do the job.
Thanks glenn. We are a couple of rookies at this stuff.We live in Louisville kentucky, and are hoping to fix the place up to sell. So we can move to florida. Thats the plan anyhow.Thanks for the answer. I'm gonna post one in the bathroom section now. I have a question about upflush toilets for the basement...sigh....it never ends.
I tried that once.....had a few loose tiles.......thought i could replace the tiles......hahahah......pulled one off and they started to fall one by one......then whatever they were glued to crumbled.....so we had to call someone to replace the tiles and they did a very crappy job....hope you have more luck than me......now we have more loose tiles.....oh well
I HAVE A COUPLE OF PIECES OF WALL TILE IN MY BATHROOM THAT NEEDS REPLACING. I CAN'T SEEM TO GET THE OLD TILE PIECES OFF THE WALL. ONE PIECE IS MISSING AND THE OTHER IS JUST THERE BUT IT WANT BULGE. HELP AND THANK YOU
You will need to get a pointed chisel (or a nail punch), a hammer, a grout saw and a 5 way scraper. First off remove any grout between the bad tiles and any good tiles that will stay. Once that connecting bond is broken, use the chisel and hammer to break open a few cracks in the middle of the tile. Now work the 5 way into the cracks so it gets behind the tile and starts to break it out in small chunks. ALWAYS work from the middle to the outside edges so you dont pinch a good tile or nick one. Some drywall probably will come off with the broken tile so just use a little extra thinset there to fill the void when replacing with the new tile.
