IKEA's inexpensive LACK side table is easy to transform for a variety of useful projects. Here's how to add a beautiful sunken garden to one of them with a few supplies. You can see a visual demo of the project in the video above, but if you can't watch it, you'll need an IKEA LACK side table, some heavy plastic sheeting, a box cutter, an iron and a few other supplies you probably have around the house (like a metal ruler and some painter's tape). You'll also need supplies for the garden, like gravel, soil and the succulents you want to plant.
In short, measure out the shape of the garden with your ruler, then use the box cutter to cut through the top layer of the table. Repeat until you're through the first few layers, then use the plastic sheeting to line the area where you'll lay out the garden. Tape down the sheet, trim off the excess, and then plant the garden with some gravel on the bottom, soil on top, and then nestle in your plants. For more, and a full step by step, hit the link below.
