Many artists like to paint on vintage ceiling tiles. One artist I am familiar with, looks for tins that are more than 100 years old, in good shape and require minimal prep work. The artist I am referring to generally passes up tiles that have holes or dents, preferring instead pieces with unusual designs or shapes which inspire her to use the background as part of her subject matter and design work.
With so many reproduced tiles available it may get a little tricky to tell the vintage pieces from the newer models. Older ceiling tin is heavier than the newer version and has surfaces showing lots of rust, dents, chippy paint, rough scaly edges and sharp nail holes. Although reproductions are made to look like the real thing, you will notice that the new items are lighter and smoother and are simply too perfect. Also worth mentioning is that sometimes old tiles appear new when they are not. This can happen when a vintage piece is cleaned and refinished or an original tile is framed with an old door or window trim.
Remodeling your home is a tough task but is worth the time and money put into the project once you see your home's new found beauty. If you are looking for a quick make over in one room, you may want to consider just adding a coat of paint and some new ceiling tiles. This can prove to be an inexpensive way to change the feel of a room without putting more than a day's time worth of work into the project, and will save you a pretty penny. If the room you are considering upgrading seems a bit dark for you, try switching the colors to a lighter, brighter and more radiant shade. This will not only cheer up the feel of the space, but also enlarge the appearance of the room.
