Flowerpots on a budget

Yesterday the BF and I went on our bikes around the neighbourhood to collect old buckets and the like, because my tomato plants are growing so fast and need new pots, and I don't have enough of them. We were successful, but the stuff was ugly. Really.

I then decided to cover the surface with old newspaper and maybe paint them afterwards.

The result is nice, I like it. Not sure whether to add a layer of weatherproof clear paint on top or just consider it a seasonal decoration that will have to be renewed next year.
the photos are a bit dark, it is raining here and I don't believe in showing only the sunny days - I do leave out my personal rainy days, though. Not all things need to be made public on the internet. ;-)

happy flowas
