My Farmhouse Table Has A Secret

We are currently out of town for a family wedding, so I thought I would take this opportunity to share a little about our kitchen table.  Every time I show it, I get asked questions about the farmhouse style and how pretty our chairs are.  I agree with you, I think they are pretty too and I love them.  This table also has a secret that most people don't know about.  I shared the story of the table in a previous post a few years ago at our previous house.  I thought maybe I could share it again here.
My Farmhouse Table & Chairs

The top slides over and folds in half so it can become a library table.  Isn't that amazing.  I love this.  (This picture was taken a while back in my dining room)

The trestle base is so pretty with it's turned posts.

 I love that the top is planked and distressed solid oak.  I've had this table for over 20 years and it is still in perfect condition.

 See how pretty the color and finish is.

 The chairs are so heavy, really solid too.  They're a great classic traditional style.

 I bought these on consignment years ago and you can imagine my surprise when I turned the table and chairs over and saw this.

 It came with 6 chairs, I have loaned 2 to my son for his breakfast room.

The style is still a favorite.  When I am having extra guests I can add a couple of rush topped benches from under the coffee table.  If I need to seat 8 then I can add two rush benches to each end and have plenty of room for everyone.
It seems to fit in any kitchen or space I use it.  Here are a couple pictures of it in our kitchen eating area of our new house. 
I've paired it with the rush seat ladder back chairs that came with my round dining room table.  I think they look great with this table too.

Don't you love having a versatile piece that can go just about any where.

  1. That's a great table! I am all about dual function and versatility these days!

  2. LOVE that table! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. It is a great table Marty. Now I remember that post when I saw the folded table. It's so fantastic to have a dual work piece of furniture.

  4. Awesome table! I remember your old post about it - and for the longest time I went looking for such a table - ah, good ole Ethan Allen - built to last a lifetime.; My mom was a huge fan and all her furniture were either classic antiques or EA. I remember not liking it cuz I was in my ultra contemporary chrome and glass phase. My mother absolutely hated modern furniture ....oh how I wish she'd have lived long enough to see me come full circle. I know she'd like my furnishings now. She was right, always always right. : - )

  5. That is such a cool secret, Marty! I love pieces that can be used for multi-purposes.
