    Default Ugly Acoustic Tile - is There an Easy Remedy?

    The breakfast nook in my 1937 colonial has acoustic tiles on the ceiling. They have been painted by the previous owners, but still look dated.

    What is the easiest way to make the ceiling visually appealing? Can the tiles be skimcoated? Can they be wallpapered?

    The crown molding is flush with the acoustic tiles, and therefore nailing drywall on top of the tiles is not possible, unless the crown molding is removed. I am reluctant to remove the tiles: I don't know their composition, and it's uncertain what I will find behind them. The rest of the house has original plaster in excellent condition. I am starting to work on cleaning and refinishing (or painting) the wood paneling in the breakfast nook. Thank you.
