Our first attempt at making concrete planters included understanding the difference between concrete and cement. Concrete, it turns out, is cement + rocks or gravel. We really wanted cement planters – so this aesthetic was a surprise! This isn’t really a tutorial, but you can check out some images of our project – in addition to how I painted and stained the finished planters – after the jump!
I did this project for a number of reasons. I have been looking for ways to bring the indoors outside and vice versa, and I also have an increasing interest in herbs. My cat Maybe likes to sit in this windowsill because it gets great light, so I decided to build something that would work with both of us!
I have a few of these boxes from a restaurant and have been want to make them into an herb garden for awhile but I wasn’t sure the best way to protect the insides from water. I used plastic sheeting and a staple gun for my raised beds, but these are so tiny. What to do?
