Tin Ceiling


We decided on putting up a tin ceiling in our old farm house. My husband did the work himself. We chose the pattern we wanted, he painted and put it up. The entire ceiling is tin including the trim. You do need to prime the back side of the tin to prevent rust etc. Plywood needed to be put up to attach the panels to. Every six inches is a cone nail to which he had to pre-drill a hole before nailing. The color scheme we picked out came together beautifully!

    What an amazing before-and-after! It looks great. I see that you installed insulation sheets under the plywood.
