DIY: Succulent table!

If you like an easy DIY then this is for you...

I have had this Ikea table for a while, but the top of it broke when a canvas fell off my wall and smashed it. So rather then take it to the dump, i decided to upcycle it!

I then bought the supplies, they weren't cheap i will admit. It was about £30 in total for the soil, stones, and all the plants.

The table i was reusing was waterproof, so whatever you buy you need to make sure you aren't going to get any leakage. The table i have is still available from ikea, and i *think* its around £16.

My selection of cacti, succulents, and other rockery type plants. Soooo cute!

Step 1 - fill the base with about an inch of pebbles, this is your drainage.

Step 2 - get your placement just how you want it, then plant away!

Step 3 - Add some decorative pebbles, i got mine at the £1 shop, and then add a few of the stones that you used for the drainage on the top too. It brings it all together dontcha think?

I must say, im rather proud of my creation!

It adds some well needed greenery to my lounge and its really low maintenance. Even if i do have to gather the large pebbles up sometimes as the dog keeps stealing them.

Let me know if you create something similar, I'd love to see it!
