Ceiling Tile Magnet Board

As a member of the preservation committee for her city, Jean from The Backyard Bungalow often gets a first glimpse of historic materials up for donation. She could barely contain her excitement when a huge stockpile of tin ceiling tile from the old Sears building was donated. You can bet Jean was sure to snatch some up at the annual salvage sale!

Jean turned one of the tiles into a magnetic board for a large blank space on her office wall. She framed it out with some trim pieces that were also snagged at the salvage sale. The vintage materials are a perfect fit for Jean’s space. I especially love that she knows the history behind them.
