I LOVE paint - the possibilities are endless! I'm always amazed at the power of just painting something - it is probably the easiest way to create a dramatic change. Plus, it's easy to paint over, if you change your mind!
When I first saw Layla Grace's Bliss Studio Z accent table, I knew it would be the perfect project for a tree that had fallen down around Thanksgiving. David cut a section off with the chain saw then, and it's been drying out in our garage over the past few months. Thankfully David was on board, because this stump is HEAVY, this project would have been nearly impossible without him.
Here's the Layla Grace version.
Here's our version!
1. The bark was removed with a chisel and mallet.
2. Then a circle was drawn around the top as a guide. The excess was trimmed with a chisel and mallet.
I love how the glaze brings out the detail!
Ranunculus are one of my favorite flowers, so glad that it's finally spring!
The baskets, glossy yellow console table and rug were Home Goods finds.
We're planning on using it outside on our future patio, but I love it inside too!
Carving the detail took a little extra time, but I love the look - so worth it!
