Finding and using salvaged galvanized goodies has been something I have loved to do since I would go and stay on my grandparent’s apple farm. I would find things from old tin cans to galvanized stencils that they would label the wooden apple boxes with. So today I thought I would share with you 5 Fun Ways to add Galvanized Farmhouse Wares to your Decor.
5 Fun Ways to Add Galvanized Farmhouse Wares to your Decor
Finding galvanized goodies is just part of the thrill! Whether it be at your local garage sale or thrift shop there is always something galvanised that you can take home and add to your decor. When you get them home the real fun begins with finding a new home for all of your new found treasures. So when your out and about be sure to keep an eye out for these 5 Galvanized Goodies to decorate with.
1. Grab Old Tin Cans
Once you get your tins home give them a good clean in hot soapy water and get rid of all the grime. Then add a simple bunch of faux hydrangeas or greenery. Add a number tag, Old books and basket and you’re done!
2. Snavel up old grain scoops
Grain scoops are fun to pop faux greenery into or even a candle to brighten up any old room. If you don’t have any luck finding old grain scoops Amazon has some reproduction ones that will do the trick.
3. Mini Galvanized Buckets
These little guys are always popping up in my local thrift store and are great not only for little vignettes around your home. They are perfect to store your crafty goodies in, like paintbrushes, pens, scissors etc. Amazon also has a set of 3 galvanized buckets which would be perfect. There are also lots of galvanised goodies available at your $2 Shop too.
4. Keep an eye out for Galvanised Trays
Having your vignettes set on a galvanized tray lifts your display and adds a nice farmhouse feel. Plus of course, they double up as an awesome little helper when you’re entertaining!
5. Don’t walk straight past Old Cake Tins
You probably think I’ve lost my mind! Old Cake Tins with all their embedded burnt bits from all of those yummy cakes that have been baked are the perfect addition! Just like this nut loaf tin that we have sitting on our Hall Stand. I just removed the lid off one end and left the other end on it. Makes the perfect farmhouse style vase don’t you think?
