French Farm Table Changes

I've been playing with a vignette on the French farm table. Since I moved the vintage scale that was here to the sideboard in the great room I had to come up with something new so I got busy shopping the house.

I pulled these things from here and there and just started layering.

I used one of the vintage bread boards as the base and filled a vintage colander with lemons and limes.

A stack of Havilland plates and some checked napkins.



Collected vintage silverware added to a crock.



Doesn't hurt to throw in an old little yellow chicken.



We are really enjoying this table. I love the drawers at each end for our everyday linen storage. I just pull out what's needed and Mr. Savvy puts everything away after we finish eating.



Just for fun I added one of the benches. I had bought these to use at the table, but Mr. Savvy prefers a chair and I totally get that.

I love this look and it didn't cost a thing.

Now, I better go put the bench back in the master bedroom and put the chairs back at the table before the mister has to sit here to eat.

Want to see some more Country French design? Be sure to come back on Sunday as I join this group of ladies once a month to share our Country French design ideas.


Have a beautiful day.

  4. Kim what a bright and cheerful vignette, love it! Your French farm table and bench are awesome and I love how it's has those storage drawers on the sides. Okay, I'm crazy about your yellow chicken, just so darn cute and along side your yellow napkins it's all delightful!
    Happy Day girl!

  5. Love the yellow and white. You would love visiting Hermann. Even though it is a German town, the style of the Festhalle could easily be found in France. We've been so many times and never stayed over till last weekend. Truly enjoyed.
    I love the addition of the bench. I agree with Mr Savvy. The table we had at the condo had benches. We prefer chairs.

  16. I love the whole collection of items from around your home. All the bright yellows, blues and reds are just lovely! I LOVE that your table has drawers. I could so use that with all my place-mats and cloth napkins. ~ Jamie

  17. Nice night pop of yellow Kim. Sigh... still in luv with your table... those drawers... Just beautiful!

  18. I spy checks-from one check loving girl to another! :) The little yellow rooster just makes the whole vignette because he looks so chipper! We have some drawers in our dining table, but they are so small that they aren't useful. It's just a reproduction, but I love how you can actually use yours to store napkins and placemats!

    Be a sweetie,

    I love your vignette and I will be copying it somewhat - after I finish purging in the garage.

  33. Very pretty vignette, love to shop the house to create a new look. also "get" that Mr. S. wants a chair, so would my Joe. MEN:):) I love the yellows too.

  34. Kim, your table is wonderful! The arrangement is so bright and pretty, too.

  35. Kim, your vignette is very cheerful. The pop of yellow is perfect. My friend purchased a French farm table in Paris years ago. We've eaten many a meal off that wonderful piece, and she uses the narrow benches that came with it. Trying to talk her into using chairs. ;-)

  36. I LOVE the bench there - can't he sit in one of the chairs on the other side LOL ?
    Such a beautiful table !

  37. Hi Kim, beautiful table vignette and I love that bench! Enjoy your weekend, Gail

  38. Seeing your table reminds me of one of my greatest regrets. I bought one very similar at a garage sale and loved it, especially the storage drawers. When we sold the house it was in, I left it behind and have kicked myself over and over.

  39. Beautiful! I love the yellow accent in your vignette!

  40. Kim, did you ever work as a stylist for Pottery barn or something? Your vignettes are always impeccably arranged and perfect!

    1. Diane, it seems to be a feedburner glitch and there is nothing I can do about it. I don't get many blogs that I subscribe to, too. Follow me through bloglovin and you will receive all blogs that you follow through BL in your inbox. It is the social icon on my blog with the heart shape at the top of my sidebar and below each post. Thanks
