Faux Hammered Tin Ceiling

Morning!!!

Jas and I painted the kitchen ceiling yesterday to give it a hammered tin tile look. We have ugly white decorative tiles on the ceilings in our house. Each room has a different look. Over time they get a yellow look to them and look awful. They are original to the house, 1970.

He's always wanted to paint them but Im not fond of painted ceilings until I saw Rustoleums Hammered paint. I picked "brown" for the kitchen, but its more of a bronze look. It is VERY messy and VERY stinky but WELL WORTH it for the transformation.



I just LOVE it! In fact, Im planning on doing my LR and hallway in a copper color, but not til Spring because of the smell. Thankfully it was warm enough yesterday to open ALL of the windows. I can still smell it this morning.

The paint is a little expensive as we could only find it in quart size and it ran us about $19 a qt and we used 2 1/2 just for my tiny kitchen. I did the cut in with and Jas rolled on the rest.







It really has a shiny tin look to it and is just awesome!

Now for my giveaway that ended Friday, Ill be back girls - there were THREE of you who won!!

That is awesome! I love the look, I may have to consider that for my kitchen. My ceiling needs redone, but I didn't know what to do with it. Blessings, Traci

The first few pics I sort of thought...how warm and wonderful...then the last few pics it appears shiny to help reflect the light back down....I really really like this look...and 19 per quart isn't that bad considering what real tiles would have cost. You did a wonderful job...♥
