Beautiful & Useful: Tree Stumps at Home

You probably never realized just how lucky you'd be if you came across a tree stump, did you? Currently in vogue, stumps can be used for many different things in the home, particularly side tables.

Group three or four together to create a cluster of stumps in the living room or just one for a side table next to the sofa. Place a modern, bright colored lamp on it to keep things interesting.

Add a little padding to the top of several small tree stumps and you have easily created seating for family and friends. Attach caster wheels to a low rise stump and you have an option that can be moved to work wherever it is needed easily Sometimes it's the simplest things that look the most beautiful.
