DIY Outdoor Rolling Stump Side Table The Happy Housie You guys! I am so exciting that I finally tackled this project. It’s been on my mental “to do” list for a few years now. And I have to credit a friend of mine for finally getting the ball rolling. She messaged me the other day that she had some nice stumps I might like – and sent me a picture of hers all sanded and smooth. I was sold. I knew it would be the perfect little side table on our deck this year… we are switching a few things around and it works really well with a new addition that I plan to share with you soon! So here is how you can make your own simple & thrifty DIY outdoor rolling stump side table… And add a little rustic chic feel to your deck or patio this summer.

Maybe a “dipped” looking finish on the bottom? In the end, life won out and I didn’t have time to tackle anything extravagant.
