At this stage, the author took up the box in which the machine was stored. By this time, the wife had decided what she would use all this good for, it would be a flower stand. Initially, it was planned to plant them immediately in the box, but later the new owners decided that it would be better to put flowers in pots in the box. The author blew the box from the inside with a compressor. Then he pasted over the edges of the sides with masking tape. From the inside, the author painted the box with rubber paint to protect the wood bottom and walls from moisture. First, he painted over the corners with a brush, and rolled up the main surfaces with a roller. I did not paint the outer surfaces of the walls, a pattern will be applied to them.
