Unusual garden table: a great idea for the original decor

Summer gatherings on the veranda can become even more comfortable. Build a small table in the center of which you can place a small flower bed or a narrow garden bed with fragrant herbs. Great alternative to the usual vase!

You will need:

  • Wooden beam;
  • plywood;
  • Metal sheet;
  • scissors for metal;
  • self-tapping screws;
  • jigsaw, saw and drill;
  • ruler;
  • a hammer;
  • protective gloves;
  • marker;
  • plants and soil;
  • pebbles or pebbles for decoration

In this master class, a table is created from scratch. However, if you have a finished piece of furniture, you can add it to the flower box.

Calculate the size of the future box and proceed to cutting out its parts. Instead of scissors, you can cut an electric jigsaw - so you can cope with the work much faster.

Here is an approximate diagram of parts that can be used when cutting metal. Build it on paper and transfer to your sheet with a marker.

Fix the wooden block on the work bench with the help of screws. Its thickness should coincide with the thickness of the future box. To fix the fold of the sheet, use a hammer and another small bar. Hit on it, and not directly on the sheet to avoid dents.

It is necessary to bend the sheet starting from the center lines. The order of bends is shown in the diagram.

The next step is fixing the box with self-tapping screws. It is better to use fairly large ones, even if their ends are longer than the walls.

Make a table, which is depicted on the diagram, from sheets of plywood. In the central part make a slot for the box. Legs can be painted in advance. Attach the drawer to the bottom of the table with self-tapping screws. You need to choose short ones that will not damage the tabletop, so place them quite often. After all the work on the assembly, paint the table in the chosen color and allow the paint to dry.

At the bottom of the box pour pebbles, pebbles or other drainage. Then a layer of soil is laid, but do not fill the box to the brim.

Since the author wanted to see the result of his work as soon as possible, he landed ready-made plants in the box.But if you are not in a hurry, you can use any seeds.

Enjoy your creation!
