A small stump can make a fine and elegant presence in any of the rooms, on the patio or in the garden, carrying with it enormous aesthetic qualities if we know how to highlight them. Mostly used as fire wood, tree stumps hide behind their inert appearance an unrivalled potential when it comes to metamorphosing into items and accessories embellishing our homes and gardens, imparting extra originality and personality. Below are several stump decorating ideas, simple things, easy to make, but having a powerful visual impact with the surrounding landscape becoming more dynamic.
It can’t get more beautiful and simple that that! A coffee table on castors which brings the pure beauty of the nature it comes from in its tiny dimensions. Easy to build, the original log table will become the focal point of the living or the patio.
And since we mentioned a coffee table, let’s now turn our attention to stump chairs as well. The stump cut in half becomes a curious presence in your little corner where you collect your thoughts and will be a perfect match for the little table seen before.
Leaving aside those practical use things in the house, let’s now look at some decorations. A hideous stump, with roots spreading all around, can get a friendly air if you put some paint on it, as seen in the image below.
Or you can create a little fun corner for the children, asking for their help in decorating the accessories. The table and the stools will bring extra vitality to the place while the little ones will get to appreciate the healthy qualities of living in nature. You have many options within reach to enliven the place, including a fairy castle.
On the patio or right next to the main entryway, a natural flower pot made from an inert stump is a presence full of interesting contrasts and accents. The succulent plants gibe some dynamism to the picture and become a point of attraction no matter where placed.
An explosion of colors and shapes in your house! Slices of log painted in various colors and with a magnet stripe attached on the back can decorate the fridge in the kitchen, shedding extra light and color. Or place different size logs and stump in a corner, paint their tops in different colors for a vibrant accent brought to the room.
