Recently how I shared with how I never met a (reasonably priced) old toolbox I didn’t like – and then want to bring home with me.

Well, the same could be said for galvanized buckets.

And I found myself with a whole bunch of them.

One day I was moving them around in the garage, and an idea struck.

They would make the perfect outdoor Christmas tree!

And so I gathered them all up, realized I needed just one more – which I found from a lovely lady at a fun little shop.  Scooped it right off her front porch – so it could go on my own porch.

I had different plans for the topper, but then as I put it all together, the galvanized scoop I had planned to put around it, seemed the perfect way to top it off.

And so a grapevine wreath was filled with a galvanized container and some greenery and hung on the door.

My wood holder was moved to the other side to hold some old skates, keep a pretty vintage sled company and be lit by more candles.

So although this idea may not be for everyone (the cable guy was very intrigued last week!), I personally think it makes for the perfect entrance to our home and our toolbox tree!

  20. I must say I have never seen anything like this before…. Very original. Love it!!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!! A home without some whimsy…without that little bit of fun…well, it just isn’t enticing. It just looks like all the rest…but that personal touch of whimsy…It makes all the difference in the world! It adds character. It adds interest…it adds ZING and POP!!! I recently read somewhere that in family photos there should be 3 main colors, and then there should be the touch of a 4th color…just a touch…to add that POP!!!! Well, that’s what makes your home so very cool…so number one…it’s that touch of whimsy that POPS!!!! A Christmas tree made out of wash tubs??? AWESOME!!! Another Christmas tree made out of tool boxes???? The most awesome of awesome. You are amazing!

  22. It looks so perfect! Your galvanized tree..awesome. What a wonderful welcome to your home.

  23. now THAT is a neat idea! i love the size of your porch, too. i’m having major porch envy, lol.

  24. Laura…just looking around your blog at all of the Christmas GOODNESS… Such awesome ideas… Love your creativity with the buckets and the tool box (never thought old tool boxes could look so awesome stacked like a Christmas tree!) I mean… it’s so cool… primitive cool!! :) It all looks so good!

  25. I loved your front porch so much that I had to shout it out on my Facebook …. Fantastic Laura!

  26. Laura,
    I am excite to be featuring your “tub tree” on my “Friday Fave Pins” tomorrow on Dec 7th. I hope you come on over for a visit very soon!!

    What color/paint brand is your front door? I LOVE IT!

  30. Mary Boggs says:

    I haven’t been able to find any cool ribbon like that anywhere that have on the galv tub tree. Do you share sources? :)

  31. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
