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?

  9. Stephanie took the words right out of my mouth! LOVE the industrial touch, very chic!

  10. Great idea, an accent wall for the backyard! I really like the look of the tin & it matches well with everything else in your yard. Great job!

  11. I love, love, LOVE this! I just found some already aged corrugated tin over in my next door neighbors junk pile when I was snooping around for some weathered wood. He is always remodeling and getting rid of the BEST stuff! No, I didn't take it, but I did ask my hubby to go over and ask him if I could have some of it before he hauls it to the dump! So much fun ahead :) Thanks for sharing this idea. Blessings, Patti

  12. Awesome idea! Love it. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Have been looking to do something similar for my wife. Thanks for posting it up. Looks very interesting and even better once the reflectivity goes out of the metal...less heat.
    I am starting with older tin so definitely not shiny. Again, thanks.

  14. I love this! I found you on Home talk. I too love the industrial look! My husband is Australian and I wanted to dedicate a place to him "The Outback Shack" and industrial seems to be the way to go in our back yard. So many ideas swirling in this head of mine! I can't wait to get started!
