Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson ~ Vintage Rustic Containers
Sometimes a rustic vintage container catches your eye, you pass it by simply because your not sure what you could do with it. Spring is the perfect time to plant your favorite flowers or herbs in containers. They are unique, easy and you can place them exactly where you want to see them.

Vintage watering cans and galvanized buckets can be filled and placed anywhere. Drilling a hole in the bottom ensures proper drainage.
Boxes,crates and old wooden trunks make great containers. If the paint is worn and chippy with old advertising on them, even better!
A simple vintage bakers pan. The perfect little reminder its spring.
Vintage wagons are perfect for container gardening. Easy to move anywhere.
A favorite of mine are these vintage goat wagons. A little scarce to find.
Galvanized buckets can be found in all sizes and shapes. Work well in pairs.
Wine barrels have great character and versatile. Dwarf trees, vegetables and strawberry’s do well planted in them.
My design tip: If space is limited, a rustic garden container is perfect. A drainage hole is essential. Simply bring the container inside for the evening if your having a party!
A beautiful Saturday to you, Happy Spring!
