I love to shop the 40% off galvanized items in Hobby Lobby's Spring Sale.

First, I brushed two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White  onto four wood ball knobs from Hobby Lobby.

The ball knobs were applied as feet on the bottom of the galvanized container.

I then pulled out this decor transfer to find graphics and words that would work on my container.

This graphics are in white on these.  I could have used black transfers as well on galvanized.

So then it was just a matter of finding sections of the transfer that would work on the front and back, and the sides.

I was super careful after removing the back white paper.  The transfers stick down fast and hard with metals or glass. 

More details on applying transfers can be found HERE.

Here is one end.

Here's the front.

I sprayed the transfers and feet with Easy Peasy Spray Wax to seal them.

I added a couple of old books and my rabbit foot fern to the container.  

This container may hold a container vignette on the covered patio this summer!

I also purchased this small galvanized caddy/tote at Hobby Lobby.

I added a white decor transfer to the front of the tote as well, and placed one on a brown paper tag that I tied on the wooden handle.

I like the way they turned out!

This plain galvanized flower pot was purchased at Walmart in the craft section for $1.67. 

I added a decor transfer to the front side.

I also staged my upcycled galvanized pieces with spring decor.

I have used this decor transfer on several projects and still have more graphics left for still more projects!
