DIY Tin Wall Art!

7 Materials
Sometimes it can be a little bit tricky to find the perfect piece of art to fit a specific wall space in your home, or if you do find the perfect piece, it can be pretty darn expensive! If this is the case, than you might be better off to just DIY it!!!
I’d been searching high and low for the perfect pieces of tin to hang on the giant wall behind the couch in my living room… and finally, I found them!
[Hey! Want to see more from The Project Pile?! Check it out here!]
The first thing that I did was flatten them out by placing a concrete block on them and pressing down. This actually helped to chip off some of the old paint too!
After removing all of the old paint, I then used chalk paint to coat my tin panels.

Here is the final product, and I must say that I am absolutely thrilled with the end result! It is the perfect fit for my wall, and even though it took a very long time to find the perfect pieces, it really only took one afternoon to complete the entire project!

    How do you hang them on the wall? Could you glue them behind a stove for a backsplash?
