Today I'm sharing a tutorial from a new quarterly magazine, Farmhouse Style. Farmhouse Style is created by the same people who brought you Country Sampler Magazine. Country Sampler’s Farmhouse Style magazine is filled with step-by-step DIY projects and creative decorating tips to create the farmhouse-style home of your dreams! Not only that, but each issue features tours into beautiful farm-style homes, tips and advice for simple homesteading such as raising backyard chickens or goats, features on innovative artists working with rustic materials, special articles for hosting backyard picnics, barn weddings and more!

  • 2'x4' vinyl ceiling panels or small decorative backsplash panels that replicate vintage tin ceiling tiles (find some here!!)
  • Off-white chalky-finish paint 
  • Brown or rust chalky-finish paint 
  • Paintbrush 
  • Sandpaper 
  • Matte waterproof spray sealer

  1. Cut a 2'x4' vinyl galvanized-finish ceiling-tile panel into several approximately 12"x18" place mats. (This panel design yielded four place mats vertically along the short side.)
  2. Dry brush over each place mat with off-white chalky-finish paint, leaving small areas of the metal tones underneath exposed. Let dry.
  3. Lightly dab the corners and outer edges of the place mat with brown or rust chalky-finish paint. Then, lightly brush over the entire place mat, using minimal paint. Let dry.
  4. Lightly sand random areas to expose the metal tones underneath. Finish with a matte waterproof spray sealer.
