Doghouse Planter (Again) Submitted by Nessa May 15th, 2012 I posted this planter before, but I found an identical one this morning at a yard sale for a price I couldn’t refuse ($1!) He is still pretty cute. Two of a kind~ Here’s my other one. You can see his paint is messier.
I always pick up duplicates of things if I find them cheap enough. You never know when something’s gonna break and it’s not like you can walk into a store and pick another one up when you’re a thrift addict.
And excellent that you found one with a neater paint job. But whoever was in charge of painting the roofs seems to have been too lazy to ever tape it off before they hit the brown glaze.
Yes, even though the new addition has a pretty significant crack, I wasn’t going to leave him there. The messy paint just adds to his charm.
Oh, I should add that he was cracked because somebody burnt a candle down to nothing in his dog house. I had to knife-stab out the wax (which had a 2″ layer of dust on it) for about an hour.
If ya ever have to remove wax like that again, put the whole thing in the freezer for a few hours…the wax will most likely pop right out with a little wiggling and chipping!
I love that tip!
Ooh, thanks for the tip.
Every once in awhile, I’m almost useful :) ! It works, trust me…
You have the best ceramics Nessa!
Thanks Denny :)
So jealous this was a dollar!! awesome find! He looks like Pudgey, Betty Boop’s dog!
You’re right, he does!
