Here’s another way that you can achieve an incredibly pressed tin tile look. The Blogger has been very creative. She found some thick embossed wallpaper and then sprayed it silver. She then pasted it with wallpaper adhesive. This would be ideal for use in areas that were not going to get wet or be in use.
This wallpaper was white when she bought it and you can see how good it looks in her kitchen below. We found this idea on ‘My Favourite Things’
