A Tin Crown

I picked up this beautiful tin tile at an antique show soon after we moved into the new house.  Crafted by the same vendor who I got the entry way dresser from, it was a bargain at just $7!  And I knew I wanted to use it in our Master bedroom where it would tie in with the other Moroccan patterns I’d gathered.


Unfortunately I couldn’t seem to find the perfect spot for it.  I considered putting it over by the tub, but it felt crowded there.  I was tempted to replace one of the items hanging on either side of our vanity, but the scale was off.  I also considered using it in the bedroom, but that didn’t seem right either.  At one point I even tucked it away in the cabinet planning to use it on the shelves I want the hubs to install above the toilet.  Then I had a ‘light bulb moment’ and realized it would fit perfectly over the top of the shower tile.

I asked the hubs if he thought it would be ok in such as ‘moist’ environment and he gave a green light.  So armed with a hammer, nail and step stool I proceeded to hang my green treasure in the shower.  I’m pleased to say that I’m very happy with how it looks.  The green coordinates with the green in our decorative tile making it seem like it was painted just for that spot!  Maybe I’d go so far as to say it’s the crowning jewel of the shower.. you know, if crown jewels were made of tin! 🙂


I’ve never hung anything in a shower before (other than a shower curtain), so now I’m curious – has anyone else decorated a shower with art?  If so, leave a comment and tell me about it!
