Tree Stump Tables

As an oil painter, Oksana from Sparrow’s Haven constantly finds herself seeking inspiration from nature, specifically trees. Therefore, it seems only fitting that she would want to bring the object of her fascination indoors. Oksana created these natural stump tables from an oak tree her husband and father-in-law cut down in the woods surrounding her home. I love how she utilized the hollowed center of the larger stump as a planter!

Rope Stool and Side Table

Griffin from The Design Itch was inspired by a woven ottoman from Crate & Barrel to make her own. Initially Griffin thought she could simply wrap a garden stool in nautical rope but discovered this solution would cost her way more than simply buying it from Crate & Barrel. So instead Griffin thought outside the box and glued together two ceramic pots and wrapped them in rope. Her knock-off has a similar form and the same wonderful texture as the original.

Bryan from Bryan’s DIY Home Improvement wanted new bedside tables, but a quick search online revealed that anything of decent quality would cost him a pretty penny. Instead, Bryan decided to delve into his first woodworking project and build his own following plans from The Design Confidential. Bryan’s two tables cost under $200 to build, and he went all out with high-end features like European drawer slides. Are you as blown away as me that this is Bryan’s FIRST furniture build ever? Wowzers!

Like most first-time home buyers, Jessica of The McKeown Residence found herself with big dreams of filling it with beautiful catalog pieces but a small budget. Jessica loved a metal and glass side table from Crate & Barrel and was able to track down a similar table with a price tag that fit that small budget. All it took was a few coats of spray paint to get almost an identical look!

Painted Garden Stool

If  you ever shop at Ballard you have undoubtedly seen their ceramic garden stools that make lovely little side tables. On a thrifting expedition with the girls, Myra from My Blessed Life scored a pair of oriental garden seats for only $14 – for the pair! She gave them a sleek, crisp look with some white spray paint and had herself the spitting image of Ballard’s garden seat. Seriously, can you get over the fact that they have EXACTLY the same pierced detail? Craaazy!
