My mom moved to Tucson, AZ last year from PA where my sister and I are.  The house she used to live in here had a ginormous greenhouse so she handed down a few of the plants she couldn't take with her to my sister and I.  One of the plants I got was this adorable Haworthia succulent.  It's a very dark green color with white specks on the leaves and it's spikey, it's sometimes mistaken for aloe (even tho it's a lot smaller). 
Even tho I love the plant, I hated the planter it was in.  It was also a dark green and it totally took away from the color of the plant.  Plus it was pretty plain and boring. After perusing pinterest one day I saw some cute terracotta pots that were jazzed up with lace.  I knew I could do the same thing so I busted out some paints, lace and mod podge!
I mixed up this beautiful blue color, mod podged over it so that when I water the plant the acrylic paint won't get ruined and added the lace trim. 
I love it now!! 
Here's a before and after shot...



He acually lives on top of my TV stand but the color blue was not coming out well in the pictures I was taking inside.

Thanks for looking, C&C always welcome!

Love it!  It actually complements the plant now.  Great job.
