2nd Time Around Tuesday

Thanks to Diane for changing things up a bit. Now she is hosting Second Time Around Tuesday. I posted last week and didn't realize that she was taking the week off. As usual, I am a day late and a dollar short.

Second Time Around will be for anything you have that is not really new-but may be new to you. Such as an antique store or flea market find, something from a garage sale or estate sale,
something from a thrift store, something you inherited or had given to you or something you got free that someone discarded.

My contribution this week is a piece of an old tin ceiling. I love the look of cracked and peeling paint, but for some reason, the original piece didn't appeal to me. I stripped the tin and put on a coat of weathered wood. Then I put a coat of Ivory paint on and topped that off with some antiquing. I hung it on the wall above my bed. The close-up photo shows a little more of the detail. Sorry for the crooked picture.


  1. Love it, Ms. Hare! That crackling gives that piece such character. It definitely has a story to tell.

    Hope your weekend with your friend was wonderful!
