After my recent post on dining chairs, I had a few requests for a post on tables, as well. I’m partial to the farmhouse table after buying one for my office/dining room in our last house. It worked great as a large desk and so many different styles of chairs can be paired with it when used for guests. I wouldn’t say my personal style is farmhouse but somehow this table works. I’ve included a shot of it at Christmas a few years ago and in our current home last year. I like the texture it adds to each room and I see this being a piece I’ll hang on to and pass down. (That’s one reason I started having friends sign it underneath.)
You can see more pictures of how the table looks in our current breakfast area here.
I’ve rounded up my top five online picks for farmhouse tables. As a point of reference, I found mine on Craigslist and paid $500. Although not inexpensive, I knew it was custom built and not a terrible price based on my comparison shopping.
