Walking into your backyard (or someone else’s if you don’t have one), cutting down a tree and turning it into pieces of furniture is something normally best left to the professionals. Creating side tables from stumps is probably the easiest option, but it also has its drawbacks. Will it sit upright? Is it flat, or will your morning coffee just slide off? How are you going to prevent sawdust, wood particles and, potentially, bugs, from getting all over your place? Better option: pick up one of these Krone Hanssen Wood Stubbe Poofs. They look like they’re cut straight from birch or pine, but they’re actually made from recycled polyester and covered in a photo wood stump print. It’s more expensive than the DIY upfront, but it’s much less of a time investment and you can take the cover off to clean it.
