I had to take this pic inside since it was raining outside. So its a little dark. I wanted to take one of everything before assembled, but in my excitement I forgot :)
Now , as I said the blue 14" enameled pot tray already had a wonderful heavy, shiny (glazed) finish on it, so I had to attempt to paint the base to match. It wasn't easy, but I kept working at it until I was satisfied it was close. I used regular craft acrylic paints. I also used Gorilla Glue to Glue everything but the "bowl" together. I figured I would leave it loose for ease of storing and cleaning. Once everything was dry, I sealed with several coats of a gloss finish. An hour later it was ready to be assembled and placed in my flower bed.It stands about 2 ft tall. The flowers are just starting. I also have a lot of winter sown seedlings I started placing around it. Hence the plant markers. Once these has matured I can pull the markers if they are noticeable in the foliage. What do you think? A close match?
