I bought an aloe plant for the living room and went on the search for a decorative pot. HomeDepot had a pitiful selection so I bought one that I wasn't entirely thrilled with but thought I could spray paint and make work. My next stop was home goods where I started to think outside of the box. I found a gorgeous mercury glass candy dish, that was cheaper that the HomeDepot Pot. So, I bought it, put the lid away and ended up with a very chic pot for my aloe.
