Tree trunk ideas

Did you know that you can turn a tree stump into a beautiful and original piece of home furniture and that it is a very nice idea to use a tree trunk slice as a tray or to turn it into lots of decorative items ?
Let me give you some ideas.
Furniture

Tree trunk seats on wheels. Very confortable to move them around the house!

As garden furniture.

To use them as coffee tables you could place a piece of glass as a top.

Or you can paint the table top (and/or the trunk itself) in your favorite color.

Besides the functional use, a tree trunk could be given a more decorative function and could be turned into the following items.

As into this gorgeous table lamp.

Or into a Christmas decorative item as Axel Vervoordt did at the entrance of his castle last year.

Or you could use a hollowed out tree trunk as a sort of vase!

Axel Vervoordt removed a Rhododendron branch from his garden into this hollowed out trunk.

You can use it as an umbrella stand.

And a splendid idea is the put a serie of canes into it! Very decorative to place in your entry hall!

All these examples above wouldn’t cost you that much if you could find a tree trunk in a nearest forest and if you could try to make your favorite tree trunk item yourself! Yes, a DIY project!
I do hope I inspired you today?!
