Wow. I didn’t know how much I loved a farmhouse dining table until I wrote this post. I actually own nine farmhouse tables!
Perhaps that is how you learn that you really love something. You look around and actually count how many you own. Nine farmhouse dining tables? I really had no idea!
By the way, happy Valentine’s Day!
Farmhouse Dining Tables
Nine farmhouse dining tables? Seriously? I can’t wait to tell you how this blog post came about and how happy I am to learn I now have What can be called a collection of farmhouse dining tables.
I love farmhouse style and there is something about a long farmhouse dining table that gets me every time. Of course, farmhouse dining tables come in all shapes and styles, and to be honest, I am not even sure if all of these tables I am sharing today can be classified as “farmhouse”.
So why do I have so many?
I have no idea. I love farmhouse tables and I love having them in our home. A lot of you have asked about farmhouse tables and I thought it might be fun to share some history and where I found each of these tables.
#1 Vintage White Farmhouse Dining Table in the Carriage House
This is my most recent farmhouse purchase. I bought the table at my favorite vintage sale which is the Roundtop Antique sale in Round Top and Warrenton, Texas. The chairs don’t match but that’s ok because that was intentional.
This is a traditional farmhouse dining table. It’s quite narrow and easily sits eight but can also seat ten comfortably.
#2 Wood Top Vintage Farmhouse Table on the Porch
Since Round Top, Texas is only about two hours from Waco, almost all of the antiques in our Waco home are from the Round Top antique show. I bought this table and mismatched chairs two years ago at RT and love how it looks on our porch at our Waco Airbnb.
#3 Handmade Farmhouse Style Wood Table Tops
We entertain a lot and I have always struggled to find the right tables to seat my guests. I don’t like renting tables (it’s expensive), and I love seating my guests together. A few years ago I came up with the idea to make farm-style wood tabletops that sat on top of folded plastic tables.
The tables below are actually the wood tabletops. And yes, they are sitting on top of very inexpensive plastic tables. I made two rectangle tables that I set as a long table or one large square table. I use these table tops indoors (especially at the holidays) and outdoors all summer long.
#4 Farmhouse Dining Table in the Dining Room
Actually, I bought them twice.
I bought them at the local Pottery Barn store during the dining room sale for 20% off. We placed the order in October and were told the product wouldn’t be here until mid-February. I happened to visit the Pottery Barn outlet and found the exact same dining room table and chairs for half the price. Since it was so soon after I placed the order I was able to cancel my original order and buy them at the outlet.
The price was so much less and I had my new table and chairs in a few days!
#5 Farmhouse Craft Table
This fun table was a Rose Bowl flea market find. I will never forget that I paid $35 for it and the only thing wrong with it was that it was painted turquoise. A lot of hand sanding and lots of black spray paint were all it needed.
#6 Farmhouse Milk Painted Coffee Table
I know that technically this isn’t a dining room table. But if I counted how many times we have eaten on this table it should be called a farmhouse dining room table. I bought this vintage coffee table at the flea market. It weighed a ton and I managed to talk the vendor into dropping it off at my home. It was stained a very dark brown and finally, last year, I painted it with milk paint.
I love this table. It’s been in our family a long time and it has puppy chew marks and lots of scratches from soccer cleats and baseball cleats. As far as I am concerned, it is a family heirloom!
#7 Farmhouse Game Table
I bought this wood table at Bella Cottage. Since we play a lot of games in our family, I thought having a table specifically for games made a lot of sense. This table is also well used for puzzles and I love that I can work on it anytime I want and not worry that it is in the way. I am about to start a new puzzle soon!
Of course, we use this small farmhouse dining table for dinners a lot!
#8 Farmouse Dining Table in the Waco House
#9 Farmhouse Dining Table at the Beach House
I bought our Beach house dining room table on Craig’s List! It was $100 and came with six chairs. And it was from Pottery Barn. I haven’t bought a lot of things on Craig’s List but I sure buy a lot of items at Flea Markets. I guess you could call them the same thing, but just a bit different.
This table has been been a great addition to our Ventura home. I highly encourage you to look at both Craig’s List and Facebook Marketplace for good deals. Especially on furniture.
