New Kitchen Table

I was at the thrift store a couple weeks ago and found a farmhouse table that I immediately thought would be perfect for my gravel patio come spring.

It's been sitting in the garage ever since.  That is until today anyway.  I figured instead of having it sit out in the garage I'd see if it would work in the kitchen.

It's a truly lovely table.  
Very heavy and sturdy with a planked top that I love.

Simple legs - - that I love.

A nice wide apron - - that I love.

Plus it's fits perfectly in the kitchen.

Sorry gravel patio . . . the kitchen took your table!!!!

Granted the current color is NOT pretty or lovable.  It's a weird green color with a very orangeish sealant over the top if it.

But do you see the color underneath the paint.  Right there by the nail hole?

That part is perfect.

I'm thinking, stained wood top with a creamy white colored base.  Lot's of distressing of course to mimic it's current distressed state.

Maybe the patio will see this beauty come springtime after all.  But only for a makeover!  
Then it's back to the kitchen.



  1. so adorable, I love it with the mismatched chairs!

  2. What a find, Robin! Be still my heart...that would have stopped me in my tracks!

  3. Oh wow, definitely a kitchen keeper! Can't wait to see it this spring when it's been re-done!


  4. The table is lovely- love the lines and simplicity!
