For the LOVE of Ceiling Tin

Yep it's one of my favorite things to decorate with!!!!  The more aged the better.  This week I am featuring the tin ceiling I installed in our daughters bathroom!!  I got a steal on 5 sheets of OLD ceiling tin and cut/mounted on a sheet of plywood and screwed  to ceiling.  The tin was VERY rusty on the back that is why I put it on the plywood and if I ever wanted to take it down it would be easy.
Here is the whole ceiling..it's in the vanity area.  Since I love the aged look I knocked off the really loose pieces of paint and sprayed clear sealer on the rest.  The look was exactly what I was going for.  And if I ever come accross more sheets at $5 each I will make another one!!!  Yep I got the tin for only $5 a sheet!!!  If you look hard enough you can find it for a great price!! 
Here is another view...yes I had to lay on the floor to get a photo of the whole ceiling.  So if you are on the hunt for old tin I would suggest antique stores, flea markets and Craig's List...happy hunting!!
