Being on a budget doesn’t have to mean using ugly containers. If you’re willing to put a little elbow grease into converting a cheap plastic pot into something unique and stylish, then you can have nice looking pots for less than $20. Hunt down garage sales and scour Craig’s List to find inexpensive pots. Then with $10 of paint and stenciling supplies, you’ll be well on your way.
