anything galvanized

There are a few home accessories with which I am obsessed. Bedding and pillows are a couple. And galvanized anything is another. I don't know what it is. When I lived in Durango I was obsessed with the huge tub-like feeders at the feed and seed store (seen as a planter above). I have also seen them used as actual human tubs (Domino Mag). There is something about the rough yet shininess of it ... so shabby chic. They go with any decor. The picture below is from Country Home magazine.

Last summer I bought a bunch of round galvanized buckets (similar to below) and small trashcans, drilled holes in the bottom and used them as planters. Home Depot has a great selection.
