Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs knew exactly what to do with a tree that had fallen down in her backyard – turn it into a shapely, hand-chiseled accent table! Sarah enlisted the help of her husband David, and the couple worked together to remove the bark, cut angles into the stump, sand it smooth, and finally finish it off with paint and glaze.

Heather of Twin Dragonfly Designs has found a lot to love in Target’s home décor section this season and says it would all look absolutely beautiful in her home. Now Target may be on the cheap side compared to Pottery Barn and friends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t DIY for less! Heather found an accent table with a wood top and wire base she loved, just not for $99. She was able to recreate it for only twelve dollars using a umbrella basket she simply flipped over and free cable spool ends from Home Depot. I love the way Heather thinks!

Cara from Chasing Shiny Objects gave a quick update to a plain white table by painting the legs gold for a trendy paint-dipped effect. Cara already had her table, so it was literally as simple as taping and painting. As Cara shares, this look can be achieved with one of those cheap round tables that are usually covered with a tablecloth. With a little paint, no one will know it’s from Wal-mart!

DIY Tree Stump Tables

Merril, the Girl of a Thousand Dreams, loves the organic, natural look of tree stump tables but not the price. Individual tables can go for hundreds of dollars. Merril had to have them though! After finding some free tree stumps in good condition, the process was very simple. The bark was removed and the stumps were sanded and finished with four coats of polyurethane. The results are much better than Merril could have imagined, and her wallet is much happier!
