Explore a different design style each week in the all-new series Eye on Design. We partnered with Lowe's to bring you the fifth episode.
The '80s represented an era of design that was fun, loud, and colorful. We're bringing back the decade in this episode of Eye on Design with modernized geometric planters made from cinder blocks, which act as a blank canvas that can be made into anything your heart desires. The open space inside the colorful blocks can even be used to plant flowers or a vegetable garden! Watch the clip above and give your outdoor space the Spring refresh it's begging for.
Here's what you'll need:
- Concrete blocks
- Concrete caps
- Multi-Surface Painter's Tape
- Latex paint (Griffin Gold and Tropical Cay)
- Wire hardware cloth (1/4" mesh opening)
- Wire cutters
- Pea pebbles
