Stump the Yard

Alicia’s husband looked at her like she had grown a third head when she got excited over this pile of stumps.  But Alicia had a vision.  And that vision was stump tables.  After I saw her stump tables, I got excited too!  My dad has all kinds of stumps!  I’m sure he’d be happy to give me some, even though the conversation would probably go like this:

me: Dad!  Can I have some stumps?!  I’m going to make a stump table!

dad: Wuh?

me: TABLES out of the STUMPS!  So easy!  You take the stumps, paint them, and BAM: stump tables.

dad:  So …. you want … to build a table … with the stumps?

me: Nope! No building.  Just paint + stump = table.  That’s it!

dad: *looking at me like I have grown a third head* 

Ah well.  I see the vision. Check out more on Alicia’s blog, Thrifty and Chic.

  2. These would look great oiled and lacquered as natural wood, too!

  3. HA! What a great idea! I wouldn’t have ever thought of that!!

  4. Yup. I have one topped with a bit of foam and fabric and it’s the best footstool ever! They are lovely in white..

  5. great idea! 🙂 but a little heavy piece 🙂

  6. It would only fit for a certain kind of decor…maybe in a cabin? But I do like the look and waaaay cheap!

  7. COOL!
