Vintage Ceiling Tiles...


A few years ago, my friend Pam and I went to our favorite salvage yard, Adam & Eve Salvage. We wandered around those yards filled with architectural salvage, pretending to be Rachel Ashwell from Shabby Chic. Well, at least that's what I was doing:-) We both bought a few pieces of ceiling tiles that were truly shabby, tattered and worn and they sat in our garages for the longest time.
We knew they were awesome but what did we do with them? Oh my gosh...if only I had those tiles now. I knew they made mirrors and picture frames but look at what some very creative people have done with their tiles...

This bulletin board is STUNNING!



More shabby love


And you had to know this would show up on The Shabby Tiara!
Happy Thursday!!!

  3. Hi, I've tried to think of something similar to what you described the only set (4 or 5) of dance photo's I've seen lately taken by Mark Seliger are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/13162791@N02/2326361475

    If I see anything else in the meantime I'll let you know. Oh, and I don't mind at all.
