LACK Side Table Planter

Materials: Ikea LACK side table

Description: This started out as an idea to turn an Ikea LACK Side table into a planter. But once I cut a hole in my LACK I realized there are a whole bunch of other things I could do with it. The best thing is that if you get bored with the way it looks you can change it up to match your mood or the seasons.

I basically cut a depressed cavity into the top of the LACK side table with saw. This was posted originally on Instructables, you can find detailed instructions there.
