If you ask me, these fabulous faux tin tiles by Suzy at Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom look like they came off the shelf of Pier 1 Imports.  But they’re actually a DIY project!  Imagine the looks on the faces of your friends and family when you tell them that these gorgeous creations started out as disposable cookie sheets.  (For real!)  Bravo to Suzy for her amazing use of such humble materials!  [how to make colorful faux tin tiles]
