I have seen window clings applied to big windows like this that look amazing. You could call up a local vinyl company to have them cut you out a few rolls of vinyl into just about any design you can come up with. City skylines, trees, lattice, geometric designs, or pretty much anything you can come up with. You might even be able to format a cool wallpaper design onto your windows. For gods sake, avoid the foil unless you want your leasing office all over you!

Grab a sheet of thin galvanized metal, measure for the top of the chest plus the thickness of the top board and 1/2 inch so you can fold it under to keep the edges smooth, cut squares from the corners, then nail the edges down. Paint the bottom with a vibrant color on just one side and the rest black. IF you really want a distressed look, you can lightly smack it around with a bike chain. Be careful though, not sure how much of a beating this thing can take! Sand a few spots and edges and fill it in with a rust colored paint glaze. Think old beat up file cabinet! But if these are just not a very good quality item, put them on freecycle or give them to a charity. Someone could be needing a dresser!

As far as drainage holes, all you have to do is glue a plastic bottle cap to the bottom of the inside of the bottom container and sink the inside container down to that. If the inside container doesn't have a rim on the bottom, use a sander with no paper on it vibrate out any bubbles that might form. For a stronger mix, use plastic containers and mist it well with water them wrap it up in a plastic bag for at least a week. Wet curing leaves a much stronger product and you can use high strength cement for an even stronger container. Hope this helps!
