This chic concrete planter has a secret. It’s not nearly as heavy as it looks. It’s actually an overlay of concrete on a plywood box. It’s easy to build, too.
Katrina Sullivan of Chic Little House created the planter especially for our DIY Challenge here on The Home Depot Blog. We asked to create a DIY project to show just how easy it is to use concrete for something other than a driveway or sidewalk. Her concrete planter is totally on-trend, too, with it’s solid look and appealing texture. She added a trellis to the planter to complete the project.
Just follow Katrina’s step-by-step tutorial to build a concrete planter like this for your patio.
