DIY Concrete Planter Doubles As An Industrial-Chic Drink Cooler (VIDEO)

There's no reason to go out and buy new flower pots -- or a beer cooler for that matter. HomeMade Modern's done it again, this time showing us how to make a DIY concrete planter that has a built-in spigot for drainage. This also makes it the perfect container for filling with ice and cold ones, obviously.

With just a few simple parts you can find at the hardware store and an old rectangular cabinet as a mold, you can easily whip up this industrial-chic piece that will be the focal point for your next outdoor party. And the best part? It's on wheels! Watch the video above and click through our slideshow of pretty container gardens for some inspiration.
