How to turn an ugly plastic container into a something worth planting in...

I was given some plastic horse troughs by a co-worker a while back and wanted to use them to plant some running bamboo. On their own they are not appealing to the eye. Here is what I did using bamboo edging (a common item that can be ordered from the internet) to spruce them up and make them a container reborn and nice to look at. This took me about 20 minutes to assemble. Here is the step-by-step instructions. Enjoy!

I love the final result and will try to replicate it. Thank you for the step-by-step instructions. They're easy enough to understand even for a person with two left thumbs, like me :-).
