Sometimes it takes just a bit of reinventing to turn a not-so-fab thrift store find into something truly amazing.

Take these tin tiles:

I really liked their raised pattern and the fact that they were metal, but I wasn’t feeling their color scheme at all. Since they were only $1 each, I decided to buy them and give them a makeover.

A light coat of bronze metallic paint took care of the blah colors, and further accentuated the raised design.

Then, to make the most of the metal surface, I created a set of magnets to go with them. (They’re just little kid trinkets that I found lying around the house and super-glued onto a set of magnets).

Now, I have a set of magnet boards for my daughter’s room that are truly one-of-a-kind, and it only cost me a few bucks.
