Ideas are brewing over here. I dig tree stumps. Not exactly sure why, but I think it has something to do with the life that was once contained within. And the brilliant patterns and textures of wood.
I’ve got stumps on the porch that double as cocktail tables and foot rests for our rocking chairs. I have stumps on the back patio that serve as perches to elevate potted specimens. And now I have a stump fashioned into a planter itself. I love it.
My in-laws can basically do anything but they are particularly good with wood. My mother-in-law fashioned this planter for me and lined it with copper to make it a bit more durable for plantings.
I envision all sorts of interesting applications for a planter/footed vessel such as this. I planted violas because I was antsy to get some color outside. But next I might plant some succulents and place this on my farm table in the kitchen or flowering bulbs + moss for Easter.
Would you buy something like this? Inquiring minds want to know.
