Galvanized metal has been on trend for awhile now, but it's shows like my beloved Fixer Upper, that have made this material so popular. Trays, baskets, chairs and flower pots alike, look great in this distressed metal finish. The modern farmhouse look is really optimized in this trend--mixing the appeal of old charm and the cool factor of metal. I "borrowed" my parent's round metal tray many moons ago (how trend-setting of them!) and it is one of my most-used pieces for entertaining.
