Take the plant pot, and drop it in… it will rest on the four finger cut-outs on the top of the Molger storage stool, making a flush top surface planter.

    I really like it, wanted to do something similar for my balcony.
    What about exposing this directly to sunlight and rain? will the paint come off or bubble?

    Great idea, but sadly the Socker of that size is now discontinued.
