Build It: Tin Accent Wall

After making a list and deciding to add a more 'Industrial Chic' look to our backyard, my husband was ready to get started. (See my post about our backyard decor plan here.) That's the good thing about having a 'handy man' for a hubby. I get to dream up crazy ideas and he executes them for me! The first  thing we tackled was the 'tin wall'.




Where does one buy 'tin'? Well since it is actually used as a roofing material, so we were able to easily find it at Home Depot.
We decided to treat the tin as an accent wall, something to add depth and visual interest to the backyard. We moved the grill and trimmed some of the shrubs. 

Then Jeff nailed tin sheets directly to the fence. The tin is very sharp on the edges, so wear gloves if you decided to tackle this project. Then he framed it out with wood so that the sharp edges would be covered. 

We plan on letting it 'age' naturally, so the silver color will eventually have a lovely rust color.


The "tin accent" was a pretty easy project- a big bang for a small amount of work.
Nailed it right into the fence. 



Have you ever thought about adding an 'accent' wall to your backyard?
