Pick a table that fits your space. Coffee tables, end tables and dining tables will work. The table needs to be long and wide enough to leave at least one foot of table surface around the planter.
Select a planter box with an overhanging lip around the top that will fit into the table's center. Square, rectangular, ovular and round planters all work well, but it's best to choose a planter with a similar shape to the table.
Trace Planter to Table
Place the planter in the center of the table. Use a pencil to trace the bottom of the planter on the surface of the table.
