Remember the amazing gold-painted tin ceiling in Dana's Sunny Logan Square Apartment? If you want to create your own tin ceiling (or wall or backsplash), these vintage tin tiles from the American Barn Company on Clark Street are $7.50/sf (uncleaned) and $9.00/sf (cleaned).

The pieces are typically 2 x 4 feet. All are reclaimed from Midwestern barns and buildings. Uncleaned tiles can be cleaned off with steel wool, then painted. Also available from the American Barn Company: reclaimed tongue and groove flooring, Shedhorn Antler Lamps, barn wood frames, and a project gallery of custom-made reclaimed wood furnishings.
