Gettin' crafty....

Inspiration from the internet.....thanks goes out to "Suzys Artsy Craftsy Sitcom"...Google her and see what I learned from her.  I have been going over and over so many ideas to cover the ceiling in my travel trailer, and when I found Suzy and her tin tiles, I was in love!  The artwork in the impressions and the metallic paint on them is simply stunning!  Mine, however, will be "tin".  I like the look for my space....and if I choose to paint them later on down the road, I can.
After much consideration of the extensive time it would take for me to cut and style 4" tiles to cover the entire ceiling in the camper, I decided on a bigger platform....disposable aluminum cookie sheets to hold six 4" "tiles" on one sheet.  I like how they are coming out.  I also like the fact that the ceiling will be covered in much less time (aside from my procrastination).

I will post photos of the progress and completion of the tin ceiling.

Debbie, I may do more with a splash of color behind the stove. Will post pictures if I do. Thanks for the comments! They are always welcome.
