Turn large tree stumps into charming cozy stools. This is a great way to add extra seating around the holidays or for outdoor dining. These charming decorative tree stumps can add character just about anywhere! In this case I used this idea for my front porch. This is where my family and friends seem to gather after a delicious dinner together with our hot drinks during the chilly months, or refreshing cocktails during those lazy summer nights. This is such an easy and fast project, even your little ones can join in and help. And now more friends and family can have a comfy place to sit while gathered on the porch.
