I have always loved these old metal panels. In my dreams, we'd do the whole entry hallway up to the railing with this. I'd love to do the kitchen and dining room ceilings with this stuff. It is impossible for us to justify the cost for a ceiling that can just be painted though. We do, however, need to get a backsplash for the upstairs kitchen. By my estimates these new panels from Armstrong could actually be cheaper than the white subway tile that I was planning on. I think it's also a lot more interesting. They make all sorts of different styles, but I like this one this best. It comes in this white version which is paintable. Hello, excitement. The tile is also 60% recycled. Has anyone ever seen these used for a kitchen backsplash?
We've been renovating for 5+ years now. We kicked into high gear when I was 7 months pregnant to finish remodeling our 1880's Victorian as quickly as possible. Maybe a little about life, survival, dogs, design, photography, the beach and the madness in between. - Lisa S.
