Repurposing Wood Logs & Tree Trunks

November 17, 2011

Attention folks, it’s fireplace season. And nothing says “all I want to do is lay by a fire” except a stack of wood logs. Below are some ideas for making those logs look seamless year round, and ways to give a tree trunk roots indoors.

    I like the inspiration. I have been thinking about tree limbs and trunks lately. I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do but now I have more ideas!

      I had this idea that I’d use a tree branch as a curtain rod. Unfortunately it’s hard to procure a a tree limb in NYC, even living a few blocks away from a park. Also, the branch tore apart pretty quickly. But next storm, I’ll be on the lookout for fallen branches! Be sure to send in pics if you end up doing a tree trunk/limb project – Would love to see what you come up with!
