Default Adding Tile Backdrop to Tub

Are there any simple tips to adding a tile backdrop to a bathtub? Is there a lot of cutting and pasting involved or is it relatively simple?

Denise, what do you mean by "tile backdrop"? Do you mean the waterproof panelling that mimics tile? Or do you mean ceramic tile proper?

If the former, you need some panel adhesive and a skilsaw. If the latter, you need to have a proper surface to tile (aquaboard, concrete board, or a mat like schluter kerdi cloth), and something to cut tiles with, and some practice!
