Decorative Tin Tile transformation

 I wanted something "new" for a wall in my dining room. It seems that since we added the antique buffet  that I inherited from my dad, and added a new chandelier, I have wanted to change the whole room. So I "shopped" the house, came up with the pair of red ceiling tiles. But, red wouldn't work in this room. So   I whipped out my oil rubbed bronze spray paint and my favorite antique gold paint and got creative.
                                                  Before: As they were



                                                   During: (1 coat Orb paint)



After:  rubbed with Antique gold Paint



And Finally: In their new home

  3. This is a great transformation! I have a set of three mock tin's I picked up at a yard sale. I am going to give them this treatment and transform them from blah to fabulous.

  6. Wow Debbie, what a great idea. I just love shopping the house. I feel like I'm saving money and also not wasting stuff that I already have. May I ask where you got the ceiling tile? Very pretty!
