The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Is today really Wednesday? These past few weeks have completely flown by, and suddenly it’s June! What the what?
I have been working my booty off with the online shop. There is so much that I never even thought about doing, but as I kept making progress, things kept popping up, one by one.
In the mean time, I’ve joined a group of amazing ladies for our Celebration of Summer! I’ve been so excited to spend some time outside, so I knew exactly what I wanted to share for the summer series, a stump side table.
If you’ve been following along for awhile, you may remember my first project with stumps, my split stump side table. I think it’s safe to say, I like stumps. Plus, they’re free. Can’t beat that! 🙂
Here’s how I made it (or them, since there are two). It’s such an easy project!
First, grab your stump. Mine were still covered in bark…
I used my hammer and bar to knock off the bark, which came off very easily…
Then, I used my sander and went over the entire stump (top too), to remove any remaining bark.
Once it was sanded, I wiped off the dust and applied some painters tape. No method to it, I just guessed where I wanted it to be…
With the tape in place, I used some white exterior paint in semi-gloss…
And once the last coat of paint was on the stump, I pulled off the tape…
I let the paint dry overnight, then flipped the stump over to attached the castors….
I just placed them evenly around the stump, then attached them with long screws…
With that, they were done and ready to use!
I am so happy with how they turned out! They’re the perfect accent to our new patio furniture, which received a massive makeover. I can’t wait to share it with you!
And I really love that they move around easily because of the castors. It makes cleaning and hosing off our patio so much better. Those babies are heavy!
I also must mention the incredible texture on the top…
Yowza, right? I particularly love setting out there in the morning sipping on a bit of hot tea…
Overall, I am completely loving these stump side tables!
Now, be sure to take a peek and see the other ladies, and what they have come up with for their summer project!

I like stumps too. I wish I could find a big ol’ stump like that to use as a side table. Perfect addition adding the casters, Shayna! Love them! Happy Summer! xo
This project had me at hello, but then I saw the casters on the bottom, and I’m completely gaga! Such a great project and tutorial!
I would have never thought of this! So perfect for a patio. And I’m with you on the texture of the top. Love it!
I need to find some stumps!! I love the casters on the bottom. Great idea.
So cool…I NEED one for my patio! Where can I find a tree stump?
Thank you! I got mine from my uncle. They have a ranch where he chops wood. Just so happens they had some tree stumps. 🙂
I’ve been wanting to do this forever! Yours turned out so great, I love it. Pinning! It was fun being part of the series with you.
Castors under stumps. Why didn’t I think of that??!
