Americana Architectural Details

Tin ceiling tiles were once commonplace in many homes in America. Today, you can often find them in architectural salvage yards (we did). If you can’t find any to upcycle, you can also buy them new. To make this headboard, you will also need: plywood pre-cut to the size of your bed; tin tiles; adhesive for tin (we used Liquid Nail); tin snips (scissors to cut tile with); molding; spray paint; saw; sandpaper and gloves.
