Farmhouse Table


Funky Junk Interiors in having a fun Farmhouse Table Party.  I love farmhouse tables of all kinds and I love the one I have.  Be sure to visit and see all the other wonderful tables.


I found this table and chairs at a consignment store about 15 yrs ago for the fabulous price of $450.  That's for the table and 6 chairs.  It looked brand new and it is so heavy.


I didn't realize until I got it home that it was Ethan Allen.  I think I got a steal.


One of the things that sold me on the table was the trestle base.  Big and substantial.


The turned rope design legs are absolutely stunning.  I love the beautiful wood grain that shows with each turn.


The top is a plank style with heavy distressing in some areas.


The chairs are a farmhouse windsor style chair, and they are also very heavy and substantial.


This table is so versatile it could be used anywhere, and it has a secret - - - -


The top folds in half and slides over the trestle base to become a library table.  Isn't that the greatest idea.





Throw a rooster and a burlap runner on it and you have "Frenchy Farmhouse".


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  4. Your table is beautiful and what a great price Marty. Like the others I'm all over the fact that the table folds into a buffet size, what a bonus. My farmers table is on our porch and since the temps are still in the 40's I won't be decorating it anytime soon. Thanks for sharing yours!

  20. Oh Marty, your table is beautiful! Seriously, I think it's one of the nicest I've seen and the price was super!

  21. Marti that is a gorgeous table.. Ethan Allen has such nice furniture.. I would say you got a great deal.. I was just there looking at tables and chairs.. a chair will run you just about what you paid for the whole set.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ethan Allen? You did get a steal. But the previous owners would probably be glad their table found such a wonderful new home. I love how you bunched up your cloth and added the tall candles. So pretty.

    And you have created so many beautiful tablescapes on top of it!

  24. Beautiful table!! The wood is gorgeous, and the chairs remind of my first dining set -- wish I had kept it rather than going for the yellow pine look a few years ago. Just my luck!

  25. Goodness Marty, that's some table! Love it's versatility, and as you said 'what a steal'. I love twist legs anyway :o)
    Have a great 'rest' of the weekend.

  34. Hi Marty, Yes you did get a wonderful steal on your Ethan Allen farm table and 6 chairs. My parents loved Ethan Allen which was/is very popular in the NE. Your table legs are stunning. I myself love farm tables but do not have room now. You home is always so lovely. Have you lived in the same home all your marriage? Thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.

    I love the way it folds to be a library table.

    And the "secret" is too cool. Two tables for the (partial) price of one!

  43. You got a real deal on that table and chairs! I forget the name of that line of furniture, but it was popular when I married in 1977. I bought an end table and a butler tray table in that line. I know I paid 300 for the butler tray table,
    from EA. Yep, more money than sense at the time! Happy for you; that is a fabulous table! Blogless Peggy

  45. I do like your trestle table. My hubby made me one in pine and I used it for many years when the family was all here. When I needed more cuboard space it was two big. I now have a harvest table that was my mothers. Your vignette is a happy and cheerful for the kitchen.
