I had this idea to paint the ugly ceiling tiles in the library (now more of an office) a dark brown color. They were discolored and gross and putting up a new ceiling seemed insanely time consuming. After trying out a few different options that all including a *faux tin* idea of sorts, we settled on the straight metallic color – aged copper.
I was a bit tentative as I was painting, but there was no turning back. It took two coats of enduring the awful smell of the paint to get all the nooks and crannies of the textured tiles covered, but in the end was worth it.
It’s a bit funky, but that’s just fine. And it’s a far cry from this. We still need to put crown molding back up and finish the windows, but it’s an almost complete room.
