Home Design Trends: Galvanized Stock Tanks and Feed Troughs as Décor

It looks like the farmhouse design trend isn’t going anywhere, and I’m not mad about it. I mean, vintage-inspired galvanized stock tanks and feed tanks in home design as bath tubs, shower bases, sinks, DIY home gardens, planters, coffee tables, and great spaces for organization? Seriously, the list goes on and on. These versatile galvanized containers can be used just about anywhere through your home and backyard in some of the most unexpected of ways. It’s farmhouse décor heaven. Yes, please!

Clearly, I’ve been watching too much HGTV. I blame hubby’s work schedule. And those shows are kind of addicting, amiright?

By the way, if you love the farmhouse décor feed tank look, you can typically buy galvanized feed troughs and water tanks at your local farm, tractor, or home supply store.

Now here goes … the prettiest stock tanks and feed tanks as home décor:
