Anyone out there love the “farmy” galvanized metal trend that’s going around? Well…I do. Worn, scratched, and distressed galvanized metal has character and it fits in perfectly with the farmhouse/shabby chic combo that I typically go for (read: old junk I can put flowers or candles in). Well unfortunately for me, finding those pieces that come with the character on them normally come with a higher price tag as well. However, the cheaper and shinier alternative does not mix well in my house…gimme some rust or lime wash…something to give it some character. So on my last trip to Hobby Lobby, while I was unsuccessfully avoiding eye contact with this gorgeous white-washed metal canister I muttered my infamous, yet not always accurate catch phrase…”oh I could do that”. And just like that the game was afoot.
Step 1: Spray paint the canister, making sure to cover evenly
Step 2: Once dry, lightly sand to distress until you achieve the desired look
Step 3: Enjoy the fact that you have just saved money and spend it on coffee or wine
Do you have a technique for achieving that perfect look?
