Tin Ceiling Tile

For the last eight years I've been holding on to a great tin ceiling tile.  I got it from an old building here locally, took it off the ceiling myself - that was a lot harder then I thought.


It has a great design on it.




I finally decided what to do with it.   It was in dire need of some TLC.   Bryan trimmed the uneven edges off for me.  Steel wool and some elbow grease and it was ready for some paint.   I used Rustoleum Desert Bisque and got the result I was looking for.
