DIY Project: Stump Coffee Table

July 12, 2016

Hello, my dear friends!

As promised in my recent post, today I am sharing with you tutorial of making a coffee table out of ordinary stump.

The project is very fun and costs almost nothing, though quite time and effort consuming. So first of all I went to get some stumps on the suburbs of Moscow (I know I looked very strange on the heels over there but right after that I was planning to meet with my friends) :image12I’ve got two beautiful stumps, which we brought to the apartment to see how they will look inside:

I decided that first of all I need to get rid of the crust and dry them properly:

The last step was to cover the stumps with varnish. I have added some black pigment into varnish for the side part while the top remained transparent:

now I just needed to dry them properly – it took almost two days!
