March is National Craft Month and with tin tiles such a popular and trendy material right now, there’s no reason not to get creative with them. Besides their well known uses for ceilings and backsplashes, tin tiles are great for those cute and simple DIY projects you pine over on Pinterest. Check out some of our favorite craft ideas.
The kitchen isn’t the only place you can decorate with tin, though. Tin tiles look great as an accent on your headboard in your bedroom, as a square lamp in your living room, or even in some of the cabinets in your study. Whenever you’re crafting with tin, be sure to use a Nail-Up Installation and attach the tiles with an adhesive like Liquid Nails.
You can also use those old frames you have lying around the attic to turn some of the large tin ceiling tiles into wall art. One 24-inch panel will easily accent your home décor with a simple frame around it. If you’re feeling extra crafty, grab some spray paint to decorate the frame (not the tile!) in fun, vibrant colors for a sophisticated and modern look.
Whether your project is big or small, residential or commercial, we are happy to help you choose and customize your tin project with assistance selecting patterns, colors, moldings and trim. There is often more than a single way to approach a project, and we can assist in determining the layout of the project and the necessary quantity of panels. We are also happy to provide drawings for ceiling projects.
