Galvanized Purchases That Would Make Martha Proud

Memorial Day flea markets and yard sales are the best! This weekend we unintentionally found two galvanized items that have the potential to be super cool with some TLC. 

I love how classic the galvanized look is and many major home brands have (of late) been incorporating the look into their wares. (Ahem!

Here's what we found:

Needs lots of work, but we were thinking of painting the base of this old wash-bucket a bright fire engine red and using it for parties or as a planter. Can't decide!
Loved this old wooden crate with metal contrast. It is surprisingly heavy and also needs lots of TLC. It will be stained a dark mahogany and cleaned up a bit. 

Photos of the refurbs to come shortly...
