The vintage farmhouse table is done! It went from dirty, dark and drab –
To modern farmhouse fab ♥
The table’s bottom was painted in Annie Sloan’s Old White and distressed to show off its lines. The top was sanded back and stained in a mixture of General Finishes Walnut and Whitewash. It was sanded again and another coat of stain applied for a super smooth finish. A final coat of wipe-on poly was added as a sealer.
The lovely grain shows through and it has a driftwood look to it.The top is a very thick slab and has been cut with rounded edges – beautiful.The table is a drop leaf and its two sides easily swing down. They are held up by slats of wood that are pulled out from under the table. The slats have their original string attached to use to pull out from underneath. I kept the original string but anyone can replace it with new, if they so wanted. I stained underneath the table as well. When the leaves are down, the bottom is visible and so it really had to be done! When the leaves are down, the table is quite narrow. And, when they are up it is a great large size.How I adore this table and selling it is difficult! However, sell I must! The farmhouse table is now listed (sniff, sniff :))
I just LOVE this!!! Do not get too attached to it, it’s gonna go fast.
Thank you for sharing it

Thanks so much Cassie!
What a transformation Suzanne! It’s gorgeous!
Thank you, Ann!
OMG that’s amazing! I love it!!
Oh Suzanne it’s wonderful! Should sell quickly. You’ve given the table a new personality and purpose. It looked so heavy and out of style / date before and now it almost looks lighter in weight. I absolutely love the two finishes and the top is simply beautiful. Very nice work Suzanne!
What a transformation…..incredible!

What a stunning farmhouse table! I love the trestle base and how the stretcher extends beyond leg. Loving the grey stained driftwood style top – so pretty with the white base (which is perfectly distressed by the way). I bet this baby sells very quickly!
You gave it new life and it looks great.
What an awesome table. I love how each side drops down. Great re-do!

Love that you chose the weathered stain over a normal shade of brown…..It is a lovely table, especially since the sides fold down. I’m sure you’ll be sad to see it sell!
LOVE it! It looks very Colonial Williamsburg to me … especially when the leaves are down. Are you sure you can’t keep it, it looks so lovely in your dining room!
I just wish I could but I now have a dining room table in my living room lol! I need to get rid of one and unfortunately, I need to sell 🙂 It is so hard to remember that this is supposed to be a business as I am sure you totally understand!
