How To: Make a Modern, Trough-Style Concrete Planter

I shared 12 (super rad) outdoor projects that use concrete yesterday, but I'm just going to have to make it 13! This project is too easy and too awesome not to share.      

By now you've probably figured out that I'm a huge fan girl of the DIY site HomeMade Modern. If you're not reading it, get on it! If you are -- good on ya. Anyway, back to this modern concrete planter...

Using an old cabinet and some rigid foam boards as a mold, Ben from HomeMade Modern created this trough-style planter, complete with a drainage spigot and casters for easy moving. It's pretty genius. Check out how to make your own right here!

Already have plenty of planters? Take this tip from Ben and use it as an outdoor drink cooler on wheels!
