How to Make a Table With an Inset Planter
Invite the garden to your table with this easy outdoor furniture hack. Cut holes and pop in galvanized metal mud pans to give an inexpensive wooden coffee table a cool new look with a place to plant succulents, herbs, or flowering annuals.
Succulents are hot right now, as is the practice of crafting standard kit furniture into customized decor. This project combines these two trends in one afternoon project. Fit the table with galvanized-steel mud pans (used for drywall joint compound), then turn the mud pans into planters by drilling holes in them. Have fun filling them with easy-care succulents.
