Dan Faires transformed a basic pine coffee table into a multi-purpose outdoor planter simply using paint, a jigsaw and a plastic plant container. After finding the perfectly scaled rectangular container, dan marked, then cut out a hole in the center of the table using a jigsaw. Then he sanded the entire exterior band updated it with two coats of neutral green exterior latex paint. After placing easy-to-grow herbs inside the container along with potting soil, he was able to create a tiny herb garden which doubles as a live centerpiece certain to last throughout spring.
