Paint pots in whimsical colors and def only use in shaded are w shade loving plants if u live in a hot area! Those pots dry out super fast (even when painted) and the water would just spill out of the top. Could seal the inside w paint and spray sealer. Use water gel mixed w soil to hold in moisture.
I'm loving this idea (minus the bird bath) for our herb garden. I'm thinking of painting the pots the color we are painting the kitchen so it all ties in.
