My tree-stump-side-table had termites

Hi there!

I recorded a video blog for you today because boy do I have a heads up for you!  My beautiful tree stump side table that I grabbed from up north at our cottage had a big surprise for me, and I don't want the same to happen to you.

Anybody have similar experiences where your DIY went wrong? I'd love to commiserate! Let me know in the comments.


  1. Hi from the Eastern Townships in Quebec. Thank you for posting your experience. I kept stressing how important it is to dry your wood (best in a kiln for one month) before bringing it into your home!

  2. While bringing termites in isn't a fun experience, you act so damn dramatic! No one died, your house is fine, good warning but too much drama.
