A bargain at 50p

This blog is all about our trip to our local Newton Abbot recycle centre, our find and how it is now.
This 50p Terracotta pot started its life as the normal colour but i wanted it for indoor use with our Cacti,

So 2 coats of White undercoat were the first steps

Then on to the Gloss coat.

Finally i thought this bit of painting improved it, what do you think ?

Then there were two babies jumped in to it because it looked so comfortable, hehe

And this is the collection so far, Addictive or what ?

And there’s more !!!!!
