Tin Ceiling Tile Magnetic Chalkboards
The tiles arrived in large flat boxes, packed beautifully so they wouldn’t bend or crease. My next step was to pick up some black chalkboard paint, chalk, painters tape, and fun magnets. Warning: be sure to take your time masking the tiles. I am a bit impatient and ended up spending more time meticulously removing paint from the tiles than I spent initially taping. I could have avoided this annoying step if I was just more careful in my prep.
I finally hung my new tin ceiling tile magnetic chalkboards above this industrial modern sidebar created by seventeen20. I few months back, well before the remodel took on a life of its own, I called Milan over at Decorative Ceiling Tiles to see if he had 2 tin tiles with large flat spaces and coordinating styles. We chatted a bit and together decided that the Checkered Deco Style and Opening Act tiles both had a classic art deco vibe with lines that mirrored one another. Milan also reminded me that if I wanted to create a magnet board, I would need an unfinished tin plated tile rather than the standard aluminum tiles since they won’t hold a magnet.
I love the way they turned out and best yet, the whole family takes advantage of the chalkboards to leave each other reminders and make one another smile.
