A Galvanized Grouping {Farmhouse Porch Style}

 When it comes to galvanized containers, the more the merrier!

It was time to freshen up our front porch, so I gathered several of our galvanized buckets (including some rusty chicken waterers and an old mop bucket) to use as planters. Vintage containers can be found at local yard sales, flea markets and antique shops. New galvanized buckets can be purchased at home improvement stores.

Last week, we scored this beautiful (and heavy!) clay pot from a yard sale. I fell in love with the aged patina, and the price was right! ;)

We had to wait awhile for summer to show up this year in Seattle, but it's finally here! We are soaking up a stretch of sunshine and warmth.

Hope you have a beautiful summer day...

So glad you stopped by!

  1. Love your porch so much.. Love the idea of galvanized buckets and I have several. Did you drill a whole for drainage?

    1. Thank you! The chicken waterers I didn't need to because the extra water naturally drains to the little trough where the chickens would drink from. One of the buckets had a drainage whole already and the others I'm just using short term as planters and didn't want to commit to drilling a hole. :) Layering rocks at the bottom of the buckets will help with drainage if you don't want to drill a hole but probably isn't a long-term solution. I'm not much of a green thumb...yet! (There's always hope, right?!)
