Stump on Wheels

Because we’re now up to our eyeballs in mud and more landscaping, here’s a little outdoor project.  I found a big stump in our wood pile and kindly asked Handy Sammy to carry it up for me.  Luckily, he’s a super nice, strong guy and happily helped.  Then I picked at the bark, most of which came off easily.  Because this guy is hefty and will live on the deck, I bought casters for the bottom.


Instructions suggested installing 3/8 inch from the outside.


Four work nicely and moving around is a breeze now.  And we don’t scratch the deck in the process.


Whether an extra seat or side table, this guy is handy.


For a quick jolt of color I painted the top Japanese Kimono by Behr.


I also really want to make a hairpin leg table similar to this one.

How fantastic are those blue legs?  Maybe with a chunk of birch with pretty white bark?  Also, if you like our colorful guest room, could you please take a minute to vote for it at Apartment Therapy?  Pretty, pretty please?

Thank you in advance for your help.  Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. This little stump is so cute with that great pop of color. I love that it’s so simple. My son would sure have fun “riding” it around the deck!
