Thrifty Thursday: Cat planter



I spotted this gold cat planter. At first, I thought it was neat, but the more I looked at it, the creepier it became. The hollow eyes got to me. What do you think?

Yeah, those eyes are eerie!

Perhaps a touch of repainting to solve that?

it's really a cute pose and face on the kitty. I like how the paw is in the uplifted position. It didn't scream creepy to me

I think it is a neat planter. You could always touch up the eyes. But we don't mind the eyes. Get a pretty plant for it. Take care.

I wonder if it would be less... or MORE... creepy if you painted in the eyes?

I like it. The gold is odd color--it could easily be repainted. That would improve it immensely. Better run back to the shop!!!

Definitely creepy, though I think I agree with Greg - a new coat of paint might be all it needs.

We bet that planter was painted gold by a previous owner. Another color may make it less creepy looking, though we don't think it's that bad.

Think it could use some painting with various colors.

I too wonder if the previous owner thought that a coat of gold paint might save it.. and realized it made it worse

we had to MOL at Summer's comment!

Two kitties on the porch couch

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
