A few month ago i decided to rent a studio with another blogger. Its been great and probably the best decision Ive made so far. Its been so fun decorating the space. A few weeks ago I decided to create a feature wall in my entrance area. HERE IS . I've always loved the look of a tile feature wall - but as I rent the studio I couldn't commit to something that long term. Instead I chose to create the wall using tin tiles. Here is a before of the space

These are the tin tiles I used. I updated them with paint. Below is a list of the materials I used:


- Gloss or Matt paint

- 6 x Five point Star Tin tile

- Foam Brush

- Paint tray

- Primer paint (white)

- Fine grit Sanding block

- Nails

- Hammer

- Garden gloves for safety reasons (optional)

- Clear varnish (optional)



HOW TO:

 

How to:



  • Lay the tiles on a flat surface.
  • Ligthly sand

Apply primer to help the paint stick and leave to dry.


Once the primer is dry, then apply the top paint coats with a foam roller. You can apply up to two coats

Next add a little interest. to see how I did that.


Finally seal with varnish and install the panels to the wall!

    I adore this, did you start in the middle or the side when you placed the tin tiles on your wall?
