Add Life to Your Home With a Whimsical Terrarium Table

Rebecca OConnell

Paige Russell put together a cool table that is literally brimming with life. "I've been wanting to make a piece of indoor 'garden' furniture for ages," Russell explained on Instructables. "Not only do plants help improve indoor air quality (see NASA study), they also are huge mood enhancers for me."

She reused a wood and glass cabinet door to make the table, and filled it with plants—and one dinosaur. The result is a lively furniture piece that could brighten up any room.
