Mine was pretty awful- here is the before.This is real life, people! Hahaha!
They all grew too big for their pots which meant- too big for the window sill . I kept on dreaming of nice cache- pots but everywhere I looked I would have to pay at least £30,- per pot-.So that was not going to happen.
So here's what I did:
I got 5 pink begonia's all of the same size and colour which set me back about £20,-.It's not my favourite plant by all means, but it was the cheapest .And hopefully the easiest to keep alive . It looked pretty cheerful. Plus my track record with orchids is not good.I only managed to keep 1 alive for a year , years ago.
Then I hunted for some terracotta pots from my garden, which were all old and a bit cracked.But for free!
I scrubbed the pots clean, then patched up the cracks with Pollyfilla. I then painted all the pots with "Blue Ground " from Farrow and Ball which I still had, and I painted the rim with a different colour, a cream called " Clunch " by Farrow and Ball ( where do they get these names from?!?" Clunch "! Eh ? ) ( Had a little tester pot which cost practically zero).
Like this :
Then made myself some curtains from a " vintage "( 1992) lace table cloth which I got for from a charity shop for peanuts..It had a big hole in it, so forget using it on a table. I managed to hide the hole with the curtain arrangement like so :
And then put all the new pots on the clean window sill.
