This past weekend my dad and husband came out to help my mom and I cut some small wood rounds for display ideas that we want to use in our booth at The Old School Market. Well, I have always wanted a stump side table like the ones pictured here, but I thought it was ridiculous to pay $200 for something that is readily available and couldn’t be too difficult to make. So on Sunday, when I spotted the end of a log, already missing it’s bark, I couldn’t pass it up. The men did a wonderful job sawing it off and lifting it into the trunk of the car (it is heavy!). Take a look at some of my inspiration and then see the real thing at the bottom of the post.
And here is my beauty! Forgive the bad lighting, it is stuck in the shop right now – I couldn’t move it even if I wanted to. I haven’t done anything to it yet, I think that will be a project for next week. I might follow some of the steps from this tutorial. It is so heavy that I may need to add some casters like the stool pictured above. I’ll try to remember to take some pictures of it when it’s done and in it’s proper home. I hope you all have a great day – tomorrow’s Friday!
