This Clever Woman Is Gardening a Place You Would Never Believe
The insides of our homes can be decorated and customized in any way we see fit. There are so many different styles and preferences out there, and the opportunities are endless. Some people like a more modern, sleek and stylized approach while others prefer a more cozy, traditional setting.
If you have even a very particular taste, there is likely something out there that will tickle your fancy. However, one thing that is almost never found in the world of interior design is a functional garden, until now.
Now, we see some plants appear in homes from time to time, and one of the most popular being succulents. Succulents are very low maintenance and extremely pretty type of cacti, which make them very popular to have on shelves and tables. But of all the places to have these little plants, inside of a piece of furniture rarely comes up on people’s radar.
But that is exactly where a clever woman decided to put it. Not only did she put it inside the piece of furniture, she also built the piece of furniture, which was a custom coffee table that would house the beautiful succulents.
Not only was the finished product incredibly cool, it was surprisingly simple to make. With only a limited number of easy to find supplies, she was able to create the coffee table of her dreams and make it a reality. Her first step was to find some recycled pallets to prove as the base and main component of the table.
These can easily be found behind (or at) most businesses as they are used to ship and receive products. If you can’t seem to locate some out back, perhaps ask the business owner if they have a few they can spare or buy off of them.
Once she found them, she began to take them apart and separate what she would use on the table. She broke them all down to individual planks and then could begin to build her new gorgeous table. The design of the table is fairly simple, except for the fact that had a cutout right in the middle of it so that plants can be potted inside.
After that, she worked on the frame, perimeter and top of the table. After adding some shelves and some legs for the table to stand on, her mission was structurally complete and just needed some finishing touches.
These finishing touches included a bit of stain and some cosmetic work to the wood, but once that was done (and the plants were planted), the final product was ready for use. If you look at this amazing, custom coffee table, you would never know it was made from a couple of ratty and old pallets.
This is a plant lover’s dream and would surely catch the eye of everyone who entered her living room. With a little time, some talent and some hard work, she was able to take nothing but basic wooden planks into a brilliant addition to her home.
