Repurposed- Using an old barn tin roof and barn wood for a fireplace makeover

16K Views
We updated an 80's style fireplace by using an old rusty tin roof and barn wood from a torn down barn. We added the rusted tin to the blank wall above the fireplace to add texture and visual interest. We used the barn wood to create a mantel. We also used vintage blue mason jars, old books, globes and other repurposed vintage items to create unique collected bookshelves of treasures. We painted the shelves and bricks with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and then glazed with wood stain to make it look old.
