Have you seen the tree stump side table craze?!?
I've seen natural ones (costing $200!!!!) :
I've seen gold ones:
I've seen other great DIY versions:
Rewind about 2 years, when I started this tree stump table project. Coincidentally, my uncle had just cut down a tree in his backyard, so I jumped on the chance to go pick up and pick out the perfect stump for my end table.
The hardest part was getting the first layer of bark off.
The plan was always to let is dry out for a couple of months and then polyurethane the whole thing maybe with some stain to create a nice, finished side table.
Well, it eventually sat in my garage for over a year
I also had some chairs sitting around that I still haven't decided what to do with. You can see more of that here. So, I decided to bring one into the dining room to add a little something "new" to the space. It doesn't have seat cushions quite yet, but I had just the thing to fix that!
I have been obsessed with this faux white sheepskin fur rug from Ikea for quite some time now. I never knew what I would use it for or where I would put it, so I never bought it. Well, at only $10, I decided to just buy one when I was at Ikea a couple of weeks ago. I threw it over my desk chair for a while and I loved it! I didn't care where I put it, I just had to have this faux fur for some reason.
I decided to throw it across this little lost chair until I find it a permanent home. It looks pretty cute for now, so I think I will keep it for a while.
