The Broken Table

 Last weekend's heavy winds, broke the glass top of our neighbor's table.
The cost of a glass replacement was more than the cost of a new table...so, they got a new table.
What do you do with a perfectly good table with no top?
We decided to make them a living table!

A what??
We placed a plastic nursery pot in the middle and chicken wire to the tables edge.
Then we put some Styrofoam  peanuts in the bottom of the pot for drainage and added some potting soil to the top.

Hey, is that a hops vine, you have in there?
(Nibble Nibble)

We covered the chicken wire with some moss that we scrapped off some rocks.
Then filled the center with some starts of plants from around the yard.
The only expense was potting soil!
The moss will turn brown soon, but we are hoping that the trailing plants will fill in and hang over the edges.
We will give this back to the neighbors...if we can lift it...BOL!
(Also thinking we need to paint the legs black...next dry day)

It's goofy and I helped!!
