Painted Fox: Farmhouse Boiler Tin LOVE

Thursday, October 29, 2015

Hi farmhouse lover!

Welcome back to another week of my At Home Design Series with Painted Fox!
I'm super excited about this weeks item because I gave you a little "sneak peek" yesterday on Instagram (without you even knowing it)....I'm kinda slick that way.

Everyone loved this robin egg blue rustic Farmhouse Boiler Tin so I decided to make it this weeks Painted Fox item of the week! 
What you didn't that there are two in the set! How fun is that?
Not only do you get the larger National Standard No 1 rusty boiler, but you also receive the medium size No 2 too!

If you know me, you know that I'm not big into the color scene, but I do love me some robin egg blue ANYTHING. I think the soft color is the perfect compliment to both neutral and bold decor.
Win-win! If you are looking for the perfect bit of rust, the perfect bit of farmhouse, and the perfect bit of industrial? these Farmhouse Boiler Tins answer your prayers and then some.
I can't even tell you how "perfect" the rust looks in person. They are aged to perfection in all the right spots! 
Here I have the larger tin on top of my locker bench that sits in my mudroom closet. It's super cute when you enter through the garage, and adds the perfect touch of fall with pumpkins stacked inside.


Since I have an open area on my fireplace hearth, I wanted to display both boilers all decked out for fall. Again, I stacked a pumpkin and some neutral fall items inside.  I placed the items on top of a potato sack that I picked up from Tractor Supply Company for $1.00. (yes, you read that right, ONE DOLLAR). I use these types of things all the time to display items. I fill the bottom of tins and containers with empty grocery bags or blankets and then add a farmhouse towel or burlap bag to the top. This way, your items can still be seen with the added height, but no one knows what's really hiding inside. Again.......I'm a sneaky one.

My fiance owns a cabin Up North and last year we went on a hunt for the perfect birch wood logs. Happily we found some! I tied them in twine and they are part of most of my fall and holiday displays. They fit perfectly nestled in the larger Farmhouse Boiler Tin on top of a plaid throw.


I couldn't love these tins more.....they are every itty bit of farmhouse perfection! My family better watch out, because I will be shopping my house for new items and places to display these every chance I get.

This week you can purchase the Farmhouse Boiler Tins for 20% off their regular price when you enter my code: ATHOME20 at checkout.

Please tag me on Instagram if you purchase this set because I would love to see these displayed in your home too.

How would YOU style these tins? Inquiring minds want to know.....


  1. This tin has inspired a project for me.

    I have an old wooden box from my dad - about 2 feet long. It is in need of a paint job and after seeing this, I am going to paint a graphic on the top.

    1. Sounds like a great plan Carol! Can't wait to see!

  2. SO IN LOVE!!! These are perfect! I love how you kept the neutral decor! Great styling again my friend.
