Brass Is The New Galvanized Decor

Honestly, I’m so over galvanized metal decor! The other day, I was thinking that brass is the new galvanized decor!  I have never owned many galvanized metal pieces. But now, I am happily updating the few ones I do have around the house. And I’m going for brass style instead! I do love a bit of farmhouse decor and I believe that even if you’re way into it, you can switch out a few galvanized metal containers or trays and turn them into brass/gold decor, if you like it! In an easy & budget friendly way of course! It kind of goes with any type of style, don’t you agree?

I change out my decor quite often just a little bit, in quick & inexpensive ways. I am still a neutral lover, but over time, I have added some blacks, some pops of pastels and greens to the house. And lately I am opting for the brass/gold pop here and there. It is warm and kind of neutral and goes with anything almost. So instead of buying a whole lot of new decor pieces, I just spray painted existing galvanized items I had already. So easy! So inexpensive!

From Galvanized Metal To Brass Style

I have a few of these cute galvanized planters from Ikea. And a galvanized little tray (sorry, no before photo of it) I bought years ago when I was really into galvanized everything. I don’t hate it now, but I just don’t like how it goes with the rest of my decor right now.

All I needed here was some spray paint to turn these galvanized pieces into brass style decor.

I love how this little planter looks now! It really gives this all white, blank kitchen nook a warm little detail!

I also spray painted this frame recently…. It wasn’t actually galvanized before, but I just love how well it blends in with the rest of my decor. No, I have not spray painted every thing in brass style now…

I guess, all you need sometimes, or all I need sometimes, is some paint to transform existing pieces into “new” to me decor, galvanized or not. I opt for spray paint because it is usually the easiest and fastest way to paint. Also to get into all the corners evenly is so easy.

I hope you got inspired today and maybe you even feel like transforming some of your decor? And if you decide to stay with your galvanized decor as is, that is ok of course! This is just my style opinion for my home right now.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

    Just beautiful! Love pops of metalic pieces to sparkle things up. Gives it a whole new vibe, from casual / industrial / rustic / farmhouse to a more refined modern look. And mixing metals is fun too if that is our style. Fantastic post! Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend! 💖🤗😎

      I’m so happy you like this Naomie! Thank you! Sometimes we don’t have to run to the store to actually buy new stuff to get that “new to us” feeling! I hope you’ve had a great weekend as well!

    I’m with you on the whole brass thing Katrin. It’s such a lovely, rich color. Not too over the top like gold (although I do love rose gold). Brass always looks warm and luxurious without being pretentious and it matches your unique decorating style perfectly.
