Are you game for easy DIY wood projects? If so, you are going to love this DIY table planter. It’s perfect for a few succulents to be planted in!
Years ago, we wanted to upgrade our patio with some sort of DIY wood planters but also needed a table to set drinks on. Well, this planter box idea came from meshing those two things.
Today, I’m going to share more about this DIY table planter but also link to some how-to projects that I’ve done in the past for all my plants.
DIY TABLE PLANTER
Don’t you think it’s the cutest table planter that you ever did see? Seriously though, I was just making up the wood plans as I was going along, so I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out.
It looks pretty straightforward and I think you’ll find the tutorial to be pretty straightforward but, man oh man, the math gave me headaches.
I have to be really honest about this and say that my husband had to help me figure out the math a bit. It’s called teamwork right?! He’s great at math and I’m more of a budget and spreadsheet type girl.
There are a few steps to make this, but once you get the hang of the first box you see how the rest comes together.
I wrote this project to be shared at eHow! Hop over to see it and tell me what you think if you try making one.
Once you make the planter, have fun with picking up your plants for it. I’d recommend succulents! I planted some a few years ago in mine and have brought the planter in every year once it gets cold.
Like I mentioned earlier, I also wanted to share five other plant projects that you might love. I’ve done a lot with plants over the years because I love decorating with them!

this is so fab and would look great inside, too!
Thanks girl! I plan on bringing it in our sunroom over the winter. I think it would look adorable in there.
This is so great for many things. I love the succulent and cactus with it. So cool
Thanks so much Julia! I’ve been wanting one of those crazy hair succulents (I blanking on the name right now).
So pretty and I love how you can put your drink on it even though it’s a planter!
Yes! Thanks Anni! It was a fun little project.
Practical and pretty.
It has a sculptural style, something I really like. 🙂
Thanks so much!
You always have the best ideas for planters. I love this idea!
I do adore planters and can’t afford them all.. thats probably where the DIY planters come in. =) thanks so much!

Can you just make me one?! 🙂 Love this project!
Haha, I feel like that all the time. Can you recreate your living room for me?

I just built our outdoor sofa and loveseat, and now I need to build an end table to finish off the space. This would be perfect! Way more interesting than a flat table, and you still have space for drinks!
It would be perfect! Seriously, it’s pretty simple.. you should give it a go.
I love that concept. I really enjoy rustic vintage and can envision this done in old barn boards with a few vintage gardening tools hung along the sides. Gotta try it! Thx for posting.
That would be super fun!
Hi Ashley, this is a great idea for my balcony. I’ll add mosquito-repellent plants such as lavender, marigolds, and rosemary. Thanks for the inspiration!
