A friend and I were scouting around my favorite junk store when we noticed a woman (it was hard not to notice – she was making a ton of noise!) rifling through a stack of large tin ceiling panels. They were propped up against the wall, all about the same size, some in better shape than others. All of them were aged beautifully, but some had big holes or really ragged edges. I wish, wish, wish I had a picture of the whole stack – it was great!
Each piece was pretty big (about 2′ x 4′) and not easy to handle. Old tin = sharp corners! So after she took what she could carry to the check-out, I started rifling through the stack as well. I found a beauty!
I wanted to hang it on the wall, so Kevin attached a piece of plywood to the back. He added two eye-hooks and some wire, and it was ready to hang!
Don’t you love how perfectly it’s aged? Chipped paint and rust – what more could a girl ask for?
Once it was hung, I dressed it up with a cute little coffee filter wreath that I copied from Sharyl at the Little Brown House, and…. love!
btw – I just read Sharyl’s post from today – she has made a decision to step away from blogging for a while! Her posts always make me laugh – I’ll miss her!
