WARNING! You may want to grab a hankie or napkin…you will probably drool over this table.
Or, perhaps I am just speaking for myself!
It’s a drop leaf! A very large drop leaf. With two leaves.
This table NEEDED to be a rustic farmhouse style table.
So I sanded the top down to the bare wood.
I stained the top with my customary dark walnut.
I painted the base white.
I distressed the base.
But, I didn’t like it. So I un-distressed it (painted it again).
Added two coats of polyurethane.
The end result:
Biggest! Seating for 10!
Big! Seating for 8.
Almost Big. Seating for 4-6.
Smallest. Seating for 2.
I don’t know what it is about drop leafs! I. Love. Them. They sell fast! Likely, because of their tremendous versatility for small to large spaces.
On a side note, the two chairs are from a set of five that go with a different antique table. I painted them the same white and added a distressing. The seats are covered in Hawaiian coffee sacks.
Remember the before:
