Coffee / side tables
Coffee and side tables easily freshen up your interiors or give outdoor areas a pretty touch. You can renovate any coffee or end table you want with a planter in the middle and grow whatever you want. However, greens, succulents, and cacti are the best options.

The planter can have a strip shape, a cross shape, or even frame the table however you like. In addition to growing greens or succulents, you can also grow edible herbs to eat right away with meals.
