Vintage Ceiling Tile Wall Art

/ / /

Good morning and happy Monday, y’all! 🙂  I’ve been wanting to share this ceiling tile wall art project with you for a few weeks and hubs and I were finally able to pull it off this weekend. Yay!

I love how it turned out!


  • Vintage Ceiling Tile {mine came from the fabulous Southern Accents!}
  • 2 – 1 1/2″ x 3/4″ x 4′ long pieces of wood.  {very inexpensive at Lowe’s}
  • Red spray paint
  • White spray paint
  • Sanding pad
  • Tape measure
  • Hammer & nails
  • Saw to cut the wood.

Measure the ceiling tile.  Mine was basically 24″ x 24″.

Cut the wood to build a frame.

The frame is incredibly stabilizing to the ceiling tile.

Nail the four pieces of wood together. Easy peasy. Four hands make this an easy process!

On each corner, hammer in a nail at an angle to give extra support.

Nail the ceiling tile to the frame in each corner.

Spray paint the framed ceiling tile red.  Let it dry and then spray paint it white. Trust me on this! 🙂

Use a sanding pad to distress edges.  My goal was to make this piece look somewhat “found.”


Wipe off the spray paint dust with a damp rag and prepare to hang your new ceiling tile wall art!

I can’t wait to show you where I’m hanging my vintage ceiling tile wall art! 🙂 Any guesses?

  1. I do love this, but I would take more white off to see even more RED. Red is my favorite color. Good job

  2. I’ll be honest with you…when I saw the all bright red tile I thought, “Where are the sunglasses?” Then, you told me to trust you and I kept scrolling down and I can’t believe the awesome results. Great job and I can’t wait until I see it hung up somewhere, perhaps the dining room?
    I am LOVD´s last blog post ..Gratitude Journal Monday

  3. I live the hint of red showing through. What do you think about adding a simple stencil in the center of the medallion?

  4. I love this! It looks so pretty! I like the versatility – you can spray with different color combinations and sand off a lot or a little! I should do this with my two that I just hung “as is” – it would spice them up. Yours would be so pretty on a Christmas mantle…?

    Love your blog BTW!

  5. That´s a great piece of Christmas decoration which fits into homes arranged in every design style. Myra, you´ve done a great job combining traditional motives and colors in a creative way.

  6. Myra – I am so lucky to have stumbled on your website. This is EXACTLY what I am looking to do. I am in NJ and am not sure what store you bought the tiles at – or if anyone has suggestions I am not sure where to go to purchase something similar.

    Thanks for your great ideas and inspiring posts! 🙂

  7. Wow, Myra. I’m not crafty at all but even I might try this, it looks so spectacular. Something different, yeah!
