Barn Star from scrap vintage tin ceiling tiles

I was inspired by a license plate barn star that TroyRash posted.  I decided to try my hand at producing one from some scrap vintage ceiling tiles I had laying around.  At first it turned out pretty nice... and then I over tweaked it.  I won't be so picky next time!

Pattern or design used: My own design

Unfortunately, I fussed with it a bit too much and messed up the angles. Posted: 6:51 am on September 3rd
