Do you love the look of old ceiling tins that are all the rage on social media just now? I do. There are so many options, including using paint and stencils for artful, gorgeous designs that range from aged and rustic, to elegant, to modern industrial.

At Fusion Mineral Paint, they have designed 4 lovely 12″ by 12″ tile stencils that vary from quite simple to very ornate.

And, by sheer magic, Fusion has also recently joined with super stylist, photographer, artist, and magazine guru Matthew Mead to launch their Matthew Mead Studio line of metallic paints.

The combo of these artsy stencils with the metallic paints, plus a few more of Fusion’s products was my inspiration to create these three designs.
