Coffee Table

It can be emotional to remove a big tree that’s always brought some character to your home. The good news is that even if you have to take it down, you don’t need to say goodbye to it forever! 

Get the stump cleaned up a bit to use it as your coffee table – after all, natural-looking coffee tables are rustic and incredibly trendy right now. The only difference between your stump and tables sold in furniture stores is that when you use your stump, you are saving the money that you’d spend on purchasing one that has been mass produced. 

Be sure to check online for different DIY guides that will help guide you in revitalizing your tree stump.
