Prep Tile

Unless you are using new tiles, most likely they will have some rust or old paint on them. Sand the tiles to get them clean; it will make the surface easier to paint. Wear a dust mask while sanding away old paint. If any of the tiles need to be flattened, gently tap them with a hammer. You’ll want the tiles as flat as possible before affixing them to your headboard.
