Po' Man's Tin Tile

Po' Man is certainly ME!

I really like the look of tin tile and wanted to try it out in my tremendously tiny kitchen... until I went to Lowe's and saw they wanted more than $20 for one square tile! So.... I found a bit of a way around it.

I knew there had to be a way to replicate tin tile with out the dramatic price. So, I went to the wallpaper section and found a really nice selection of textured wallpaper, already pre-glued and the whole role was the price of just one tile! Then, I strolled over to Home Depot, where I know they sell Martha Stewart metallic paints...

Now, my kitchen's fully messy b/c I'm painting and whatnot, so I'll only show you a bit, but isn't this nice? Oh well, it'll do for now.... 'till we tear out the wall when we remodel. ;-P This will pacify me in the meantime!
