Talk about a versatile piece, this frog can take on several roles in your home. I personally think he works best as a place to put your kitchen scrubber. You could also use him for a small flower pot for a succulent or even an ornamental birdhouse. Got a kid who needs to learn about saving? Why not convert him into a bank? Whatever you decide to do with him, this frog is an easy piece to paint and could be your new friend.
