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


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.

    How did you "prepare" the tin for "in-home" use? We are planning to use old roof tin in our new home...everyone wants to know what we are going to put on it? I was just going to clean it?
