From demolition arises beautiful artwork, such as this Tin Ceiling Tile painting! I upcycled this Tin Ceiling Tile into a combination frame and canvas to do some handpainted apple art. The ceiling tiles came from a building they demolished in downtown Albuquerque about thirty years ago.
Tin Ceiling Tile painting - a fun and creative way to upcycle!
They were in a panel of 8 squares. We cut them into individual squares. I used a steel-bristled brush to remove the loose paint and rust. Next, I sealed the Tin Tile with a clear coat twice on both sides. I used oil paint to decorate the center, and clear coated it two more times. The tin is mounted on Masonite with a hanger cut in.
