When you have kids sit at a kitchen bar, they inevitably swing their legs and hit their feet against the wall under the bar. If you have the wall painted a perfect shade of red, you soon see little white scuffs and dents and chips. If you have the wall painted a soft shade of cream, you soon see little black scuffs and dents and flicks of food in all shades of color. So, I needed to find a solution. I've always liked old ceiling tin but I don't really want a whole ceiling full of it (too expensive). So, I went to a local architectural salvage place and found a single tile and double tile that matched. I think I spent less than $40. for both. We nailed them into the wall and what do ya know, I liked it! Who cares if my son kicks and chips it a bit? It's already rusted and chipped and a few more chips never hurt anything.
Note: it is my sincere hope that my photography skills improve as my blogging skills improve. You get the idea and I guess that's what is important.
