painted logs as side tables

We've admired tree-stump stools with painted tops before (see DIY: Garden Stools); we also like these side tables made from felled logs, with exteriors painted glossy white. Designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf came up with the idea for a project in Provence.

Designer Jamie Durie framed this outdoor dining room by incorporating a large backyard pine tree into a stone wall. The benches are made of simple fallen tree trunks, an easy, inexpensive way to create gorgeous outdoor seating. - LOVE but trees grow.

Very nice eating space with little muss and fuss just an arbor and vine with picnic table...of coure the stone wall is a nice add.

I wish there was a way to add a pergola with an outdoor dining space like this on our house without sucking what little light I get from our tree laden back yard. Maybe the next house. Love this look.
