Need an idea to repurpose an old tree stump? Here it is! Take your tree stump and sand it. Start off with 80-grit sandpaper to get the really rough parts off, then move to 180-grit, and finish it off with 320-grit. This will help to get a super smooth finish and ensure that you won’t get any splinters. This thing is as smooth as any store-bought wood table, so the extra sanding was definitely worth it! Once it was all sanded, all that was left to do was seal it. If you want a color other than the natural wood, it would be very easy to stain as well. Find out how to stain right here.
