Stumps and Trunks, The Love Of Fallen Trees!

Has a tree fallen in your yard lately? It doesn't have to be considered an unsightly eyesore... The stump, trunk or branches from a tree can make charming additions to the home. Get creative and put that trunk or stump to great use inside and outside the home.

 Tree stumps are coming home and bringing a bit of nature inside by being transformed as tables, a base for a table and stools to just about any room of your home. Some keeping their natural color and others being painted to bring on a chic cottage feel!
