Gallery: Dumpster Transformed Into a Trashtastic Portable Mini Pool


If it’s icy cold where you are right now, why not treat yourself to a warm mental escape and feast your eyes on Louisa Dawson‘s awesome mini-pool made from a repurposed dumpster? We’ve reported on dumpster pools popping up in the past, but this quirky little design takes a step back and offers a more private approach for those interested in dumpster diving.

While the exterior of the pool remains as rough and gritty as the dumpsters you’d see on city streets, Dawson added an extra bit of polish with traditional pool tiles and a cool stainless steel ladder. Designed as functional art able to be installed on any site, the pool is portable and simply requires a quick fill for the splashing to begin.

    i applaud U Louisa, I’m thinking of backing my pick-up truck into my front yard for the kids to splash in…….should I just add a tarp that’s water-proof?
