Salvaged plant pot

A few weeks ago I had to go somewhere which is a 2 hour drive from where I live and passed an antiques centre so naturally stopped to have a mooch.
There were tons of cool things there including loads of antique metal street signs and advertising but the thing that caught my eye was outside. 

It was a big, heavy old off white pot which originally had two 'handles' on the side but one had broken off.  That didn't really bother me as the pot was such a lovely colour and shape.

I bought it for £2 as I thought it would look lovely filled with hydrangeas and the broken side could be turned away or obscured by the flowers.  It looks great in a corner of my dining room on the little round table I gave a makeover to recently.

The sun is shining here in Wales and it looks like we're going to have a glorious weekend.

Hope you have a great weekend wherever you are!


  1. I found your blog at Funky Junk Interiors. I love that flower pot. Good for you for being able to deal with a missing handle. The hydrangeas are to die for!
