Wahoo! It is time for my favorite series. I purposely have the participating bloggers NOT tell me what they did because I want to be just as surprised as you. The ladies that are helping me this month are SO FANTASTIC and I covet their stylish homes so I know they are going to knock our socks off! KariAnne from Thistlewood Farm and Julie from Julie Blanner.
As always, I chose an item and bought three of them. I kept one and sent the other 2 items to blogging friends to style in their home. Altering the item is optional but by no means necessary. The point is to show how one simple item can be interpreted in multiple ways by people with different styles.
This month the item I chose was a big 'ole wood slice! (affiliate)
Now you guys, I totally cheated this month. After a week and a half of every single person getting the flu at our house, the most horrendous flu ever, I got behind on everything except cleaning toilets. I still have my stump I ordered for this series sitting in my living room...unstyled and untouched.
BUT I do have a project using a tree stump slice that I have never shared on the blog. It is from my book, Natural Accents. So I am sharing it with you today as well as a couple of other past projects using wood slices. I bought these at Micheal's.
Start by cutting it in half with a table saw or miter saw.
I used these metal brackets (for lack of a better word) that are used for solid floating shelves. I drilled a hole that was slightly larger that the bracket so it would fit but not be too loose.
Attach the brackets to the wall and slide the wood slice right on.
I am getting ready to redo my boys' room and these are going in there. I will actually cut the new slice I just got and make some more of these shelves making four total. I think they are perfect for trophies, rocks, and other things boys collect.
Now make sure and hop over and see what KariAnne and Julie did with their wood slices!
What would you do with a chunky wood slice?
