A few months ago our neighbor had a backyard tree removed. They hauled out the chunks of tree trunk to the curb for trash pick-up later in the week. For several days I looked at those stumps and dreamed of how they would look sitting around our little campfire pit. So, I finally convinced Hubby to roll several of the heavy beasts into our backyard.
I was so giddy. I started thinking up ideas on how to paint the tops to make them a little modern.
And yet, they've sat. Just tree stumps sitting around out fire pit. The spring rain has made them look grungy and sad. So, now that we're back to a somewhat routine schedule again around here, I've decided these beasts need to get beautified before Hubby says they need to go. :)

This is similar to what I have in mind.
I like the look of the white tops, but I may leave the rough bark on the outsides as well.

See that gray stump? I love it!
If I do decide to take off the exterior bark, I think I'll keep the wood most natural looking.
I like the look Becca gave her stump.
Look how nice these stumps look when paired up with a table for eating outdoors.
I can't wait to get started on my stumps!
