    Super cute! As a fellow country girl we've been using galvanized buckets for years as well. I even use smaller ones for flatware and napkins for outdoor entertaining!

    I have the same pail, painted the same color and I use it for storage. Im going home and drilling a few holes in it and fill it with flowers! Great idea!! Love it!

    I feel the same way about PB…I see their stuff and say, "I already did that one=)"

    Thanks for the encouragement last night, I needed it!

    Love your adorable planters, can you still get them at the farm supply for a few dollars?

    Hey Julie!
    I too have plants in a galvanized planter. I bought mine from a seed supply/nursery just down the street from me. It wasn't that nice matte galvanized it was shiny, so I painted it white and filled it with herbs. đŸ™‚ I have a big ol galvanized tub in my backyard that I placed under my gutter to catch rainwater…doesn't rust and works like a charm!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my sconces. Oh girl, if you haven't used Krylons Oil Rubbed Bronze paint yet, you HAVE to go try it. It has such depth in the color! I LOVE it! đŸ™‚ I just used it again this morning on yet another project. (and I forgot to take before pictures! UGH! I get so excited about a project that I forget to take them!)
    Oh well. đŸ™‚
    Hope you have a blessed week!

    JULIE…I ADORE your planter! I love your little accident too! Zinnia's are one of my favorite cut flowers…they last FOREVER! I love Hydrangeas cut to but they don't last.
    Thanks for your sweet comment on my nook cushion! đŸ˜‰ NEW follower!

    Okay, so I realized 2 things. 1. I am already a follower…DUH!
    2. I didn't say anything about PB! I AGREE, they HAVE to have people scouring blogs for ideas, it just makes sense. We copy off each other , tit for tat! I've had an old milk carrier for several years now. I put blue ball jars in it with silver ware or individual blossoms for parties. I also put antiqu milk bottles in it as well and do the same thing. I don't even KNOW how much PB's is but it's a lot more than mine~!

    love it! I have been blessed with old washtubs, milk buckets, milk cans from family. (Good 'ol East TN farming families!) I enjoy having them around. I even have an old coal bucket of Mamaw's that I use as a magazine/book holder in the bathroom. =)

    I want one of those! Maybe you should just save PB the trouble and email your ideas to them first hand? lol It should at least be good for a finders fee? đŸ™‚ BTW, the yellow front porch planter (and it's number) is a winner; it really looks welcoming.

    Very cute. I like how the old paint looks scuffed up too in contrast to the new paint job.

    They look so cute all painted out. I have some in just their original finish. I'd love to find one like that oval one. I will have to check our feed store in town. đŸ™‚
