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:
Now for sale!
You were right…pass the hanky…love!
Thank-you! I keep staring at it. What’s wrong with me?
Amazing transformation! Love it! I am kicking myself for passing up a similar table on Craigslist! Never again! Thank you for the inspiration! You do beautiful work and I will be followin’ ya!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Great job! Love walnut & white!
Looks great! I have a table I need to paint. I better get at it.

Adorable. I love it want that table – badly!
What a great table. So versatile. And I love the white and walnut. Nice job.
You did a beautiful job. That has got to be the perfect table for a small space, its so versatile.
You’re right. I’m drooling. It’s gorgeous!
Yup I’m drooling too. I’m working on a similar project, except I have to re glue all the legs. Labour of love.
Wow!!! What did you do to the top? Looks wonderful.
First time on your blog!
I loved this table!!! I also have a drop leaf table, which my son decided to make his desk. I need to sand it and stain, like you! Beautiful!
