I have never used it myself, but I know someone who used it on a wall. It looked good and was very unique but the problem they had was getting it to line up and lay down evenly. Im sure with some practice it could be made to look good. But be careful with how much adhesive you use behind the tin, it can make it look wavy or show the pattern of the adhesive. I would use the double sided mounting tape instead of adhesive.
If you want the look of tin without actually using tin, check out anaglypta wallpaper. It comes in different patterns and can be painted. We have used it on walls as well as on ceilings. It is not difficult to install and gives beautiful results.
Great advice from Project Style, and you could paint it silver or copper. But I have never used actual tin squares.
Hi @Pamela L, tin ceiling tiles look great in bathrooms as long as they're finished with a rust-proof material like our powder coating.

I used decorator tin tiles I bought from an on line store and put them up behind my stove. replacing an ugly plain white metal piece. Turned out great and I can still use magnets to hang extra pot holders and mitts
