Tin roofing

Sharon Evans-MontoyaJackieKMS Woodworks


I need advice. I have old tin roofing panels that I acquired from an old awning. I have been searching the internet for ideas, and mostly people use it for sheds or kitchens. Does anyone have any other ideas for smaller projects?

    I guess you could use them as you would a canvas if you are artistic.

    My friend built a little tiki bar looking area in her son's bedroom for his computer desk. Looks sharp with the tin overhang.

    I've seen it used as wainscoting. I have also seen it used as ceiling panels (inside like old time tins ceilings)

    I have a friend who made ceiling tiles out of them for her studio garden She embossed them with a celtic design They were beautiful.
