Firelpace Tins

When I posted my living room I forgot to tell you about the "Faux Tin"
I knew I wanted to do something on the curve part of the Victorian Mirror. It was just to white. I found the Faux Tin at Home Depot. It looks just like the real thing. They have them in so many colors. I bought the copper one and the antique silver tin color and I liked the antique silver one best.
As you can see it just gives it a different look.
It was very easy to apply.
I measured it and just cut it with a scissors.
I really does look like the real thing...
It is a little on the $$ side it was $18 for one.
You can use it for tin ceilings, back splash etc.
So glad I just happen to find this little treasure
and thought I would pass it along...
Take care...
Mo :-)

How cool! We first found out about the GPS when we went to Seattle for a wedding in May. There was one in the car we rented. We were so surprised at how helpful it was for getting around in Seattle to find the church, reception and back to our hotel. When we got home, we bought one for us.

That was a clever idea...using that product on your curve of the fireplace. It looks gorgeous.
