Our House: A Single Vintage Tin Ceiling Tile in the Kitchen

My friend was having a barn sale and had some pieces of a tin tile ceiling for sale.

I bought one and here’s what I did with it. (In case you don’t have a friend selling some, here is another fantastic resource, at your fingertips, for vintage tin tiles!! affiliate link)

I repurposed it, and now use it for a magnet board in the kitchen at our house.

First though, I very carefully cleaned it up with a dry paint brush, being careful to not remove too much of the old paint as I carefully brushed away the dust.

Then I gave it several thin coats of spray poly finish, and with a sheetrock screw, mounted it to my kitchen wall.

The texture and details of this tile are amazing…

And all the colors of the patina… love it!

It is a fun, vintage addition to my kitchen.
