Look!: Oversized Planters

Our neighboring apartment building just installed two of these flower pots to flank their entrance. There's nothing truly special about this decision other than the fact that the planters are crazy enormous!

We like them because they aren't your grandmother's flower pots. Between the massive size and the high-gloss black finish, these planters are original and monolithic.

Oddly enough, we're skeptical of the pots for the very same reasons. They're probably not the easiest containers to work with, due to their height and weight. Also, the glossy black finish looks great when it's clean but, after only one week of exposure, it's already showing a lot of dirt.
