Home decor for less: planter-up

If you have plants around the house, you know that outfitting them with good planters can be quite expensive. A great way to save money is to raid the thrift-store! You can find planters of all sorts and not break your budget. Look for shape, color and quality. We like ceramics, terracotta and occasionally even a thick plastic planter can look amazing (with a bit of spray paint, perhaps).

Here are some of our best finds:

Ceramic planters always look good! Large: $5 small: $3
