Before & After: From Fallen Tree to End Table

Before & After: From Fallen Tree to End Table

When a tree fell in Molly and Taylor's front yard, they decided to take a lemons-into-lemonade approach and turned a part of the trunk into an adorable side table…

While Molly and Taylor, from the blog The Nesting Game, were away on their honeymoon, they got a call from a neighbor informing them that a tree had fallen in their yard. When they returned from the trip, they had the tree cut up but saved a segment of it to use as a table. After allowing the table to dry for a few months, the couple stripped the bark and knots off the stump and now they're left with a smooth, adorable little table, much like the one from West Elm that they had their eye on.

Check out the full project details on their blog — The Nesting Game: A Tree Grows in the Family Room.
