First step is sanding the tops of the stumps for a nice even, smooth sitting surface.
Next we applied a fast drying polyurathane to the tops and bottoms of the stumps to prevent rot (hopefully!).
Then we decided to make a quick and possibly temporary table to go along with our new stump stools. For the table we used a stump as the pedestal of the table and screwed a square piece of wood on top of it into the stump. Then we laid ceramic tiles on top to create a sturdy surface. We haven't technically adhered the tiles yet, but in time!
And there you have it! Delightful woodland garden seating and a table made from upcycled tree stumps!
