100 yr old tin off an old house was used to cover the big area of the wall above my kitchen.  Should I have sanded the rust off???!!! Naaaaa.  Nothin's better than rust.

I thought how neat to bring in RUST to a wall. Having the real stuff is even better. BTW, I'll be driving through your town next week on the way to Cleveland. I'll be stopping at all those flea markets down that way. :) Posted: 12:03 pm on January 28th
