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

Repurposed 5 days ago
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.

    I love old barn wood. I used it halfway up our walls 15yrs ago and it still looks great. I love the use of the old metal roofing, I'd love to see how it would look in the kitchen to cover the stove vent. Thanks for the inspiration.
