Vintage tin Canada Dry Ginger Ale advertising signs re-purposed  into wall art.
 
I found 12 old tin signs that used to hang in grocery and liquor stores to create this patchwork of wall art. Many of them were in sad shape with rust setting in so it didnt feel so bad cutting them up. I just love the graphics and the colors!
I used tin snips to cut the pieces, a drill and hammer to hold them all together using blue tacks and a lot of patience (and good gloves!).
I attached them to a 3 foot square board painted black.
This piece will be featured at one of our upcoming shows.

You make the best stuff!
