This is my first blog post and I have no idea what I'm doing or where this is going to end up. But here goes. I apologize in advance if this doesn't look professional. I love finding trash that I can turn into a treasured item. Imagine my surprise when I discovered these beauties!
You have to realize that I'm currently obsessed with anything galvanized. I'm washing these tin cans and preparing them for the recycle bin, when I realized they actually look really good! I'm sure I could upcycle them for some crazy use. I loved the color and realized I wouldn't need to paint them. I just filled them with some boxwood cuttings and surprise, surprise! I placed them in my window over my farmhouse sink. I'm really in love with this look. I couldn't get a good photo at the window, but they look pretty good on my island as well.
Just to prove my obsession with old rusty galvanized items, I want to share another of my latest finds. I was hiking in the woods and noticed something just off the road that caught my eye. It looked galvanized and rusty so I went to explore. What did my wandering eye behold, but a rusty old wash bucket that had been buried for who knows how long. Most people would have left it in the woods, but not I! I carried it home, hoping I wouldn't cut myself on the rusty edges and need a tetanus shot. I was so excited I sent a text picture to my husband and I could tell by his reply that he was super excited! Not!
The question was trash or treasure? I loved the colors and no bottom was no problem. I'm putting it on the ground in my yard and filling it with flowers. I just know that this spring and summer it is going to look beautiful with flowers over flowing. If I find that this post actually makes it online, I will post pictures this spring of my end result.
