Log Side Tables

This week marks the start of our storm season with a collection of palm fronds, branches and seeds already littering my garden courtesy of a recent hail storm. If you do come across a tree stump or fallen tree wide enough to make a side table, instead of disposing of it why not make a piece of furniture from it like these lovely log side tables below? 

This white washed log side table by The Dharma Door has been made from rainforest establishment trees in the Byron Bay Hinterland. Gum trees were originally planted to create a canopy to allow rainforest remnant seedlings to grow. When the Gum trees have served there purpose the trees are cut down and made into furniture. What a great idea!  AU $299.00 from The Dharma Door

A little more rustic but I also love these painted tree-stump stools by designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf.

If you fancy making your own, here is a great DIY instruction project from Curbly to transform your tree trunk into a coffee table.

I will be keeping an eye out this season as I need a few side tables for my bedroom.

Have fun.
