Tin is so IN

The tin ceiling is looking great. One advantage of having wood ceilings is that it's really straight forward when nailing up tin tiles. There's no need to install a wood grid system. We are probably going to paint the tin a gloss white, but it kind of looks cool unpainted, too. Thoughts?

One thing that isn't so cool about having an old house is that nothing seems to be square. Not only are the walls bowed, but an added complication is that the tin might not be the very best quality. It seems that the pattern isn't stamped quite as consistently as Michael would like. He's doing a great job, but it's a bit frustrating that the tin doesn't always line up well.

Eleven foot ceilings are awesome for many reasons, one of which is that it's so far away that you can't actually see minor imperfections. It looks great from the ground, doesn't it?

  1. It looks good unpainted. You should leave it.
