I had been planning to make a rustic looking coffee table for my deck for some time now- in my head it will be paired with this couch even though it is far out of my price range. Some day. So I had some flaky white painted wood (which has been sealed so they can't chip it off btw) and for some reason that I can no longer recall decided that I should make a channel for grass in the table. I think it was originally to make the pieces of wood I had work out better. It then occurred to me that the cats would like it (they are grass fiends and there isn't any in the yard) and I added a second planter for catnip. It has turned out to be such a successful cat table that I don't really get to use it much. On the bright side this (so far anyway) has cut back significantly on the sitting in/on potted plants that was starting to be a problem. So everyone is happy. Now if only I could get that couch...
***Update*** I added directions hopefully they make sense.
