Farmhouse Tables

Farmhouse tables come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
 Barb and I love farmhouse tables!
White ones
Black ones
Brightly colored ones

We are drawn to them like an ant to a picnic!

We both have great farmhouse tables. 
Very different, but both amazing.


This is Barb's farmhouse table.
Distressed white and awesome! And, she painted it herself.
Her room is draped in turquoise and white.
It's a beautiful space!

*****************************************************


 This is my farmhouse table.
Definitely different than Barb's.
Black and beautiful with a rich wood top.
Scrolling iron legs.
Windsor chairs.

 ********************************************

My favorite thing about Barb's table is how it looks in her dining room...
the BIG picture!
Ah-mazing!
White, distressed, very ethereal.
You definitely get a sense of peace and calm in this room.



 ***************************************************
My favorite thing about my dining table is it's iron scrolling legs
and the richness it adds to the room!
With the brick wall... very rustic.






******************************************************
Then there are very traditional antique farmhouse tables,
like my sister's table in her kitchen.

I love the mismatched chairs and the bright cheery red decor.



************************************************************

This round farmhouse table is in my sister's formal dining room.
This room is very simple, but so special because you can see
the richness of the wood of the table.


*****************************************************

As seasons come and go, our dining rooms are dressed up for each and every occasion. 
Our favorite people gather round our tables and share food, 
stories and lots of love. 
Whatever kind of table you own... 
farmhouse or not, 
Barb and I hope you experience many special blessings
around those tables.

  3. I really, really love farmhouse tables. I don't have room for half a farmhouse table, I don't think. I love yours and Barb's, though.

  11. I love both tables. I really like the look of painted and distressed, but haven't gotten up the courage to try doing it on anything that big. I have a dark pine, trestle dining table & china cabinet. I'm just not sure if it would look good with that paint technique.

  12. I love your table. Where did you get it. I have never seen one with a table base like that. Just a thought, looking a this photo I am thinking you should consider painting the brick around your fireplace. It would tie your white mantle in better and I would show off your table and light fixture more because there would be a better contrast background. Something to consider.
