Tin Man

1 01 2010

One of the drawing features to buying this house was the beautiful original tin ceiling in the kitchen.  It’s got great detail and it’s a fun color.  It’s hard to tell from this photo, but it’s an aqua/teal color.

There’s one bad thing about the ceiling…it’s discolored because of cooking smoke and I think cigarette smoke.  So, now I’ve set out to try and figure out the best way to clean it up without having to repaint the entire thing.  Any ideas?

So far, I’ve considered trying:

  1. soap & water
  2. Mr. Clean Magic eraser
  3. What else can I try???

I want to clean up the smoke without damaging the paint or ruining anything else.  If you have any tips or tricks you want to share with me on the best way to approach, please let me know!
