French Tables

12.28.2014

I will never forget my trip to France in September 2013. The main item I was shopping for was a French farm table. I wasn't sure I would find one and if I did it had to be the correct size for my breakfast room. A lot of them can be really really long or they can be too short. Luckily for me I found one just right.

I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on this beauty..

It had me at chunky turned legs and drawers with iron pulls. I bought it and then I had to wait for it to be shipped to the states. Oh, how I hate waiting for anything.

Then it arrived one year ago today! I was just like a kid on Christmas waiting for my gifts.

I finally shared the table all set up in my breakfast room for the first time last February. I used these black chairs I had stored away.

Then last May I decided to try the yellow chairs and loved the look.

After painting the walls a lighter color and making the drapes from long panels to cafe curtains it now looks like this. I still haven't shown y'all the two extensions added to it. It seats twelve with those.

My other antique French table is this pretty one I also bought in France and it sits in the center of my sitting room.

When I saw the pretty inlaid top and scalloped apron I knew I wanted it in my home.



This year it works as a great spot to decorate for Christmas.

My dining room table isn't from France, but it is a French country style. I am so glad I finally painted the apron and legs this year.

  1. I'm dreaming of a French farmhouse style table for our dining room-especially now that I've promised my dining set to my daughter when she gets married. Love the rustic look - yours is perfect! I hope you had a blessed Christmas and looking forward to the new year,
    Blessings,

  13. I love your tables: the French one has real rustic charm and your dining-room one is charming with its painted legs, but the small "guéridon" with its inlaid top is my favourite!

  14. That table is so much better than an Eiffel tower snow globe for a souvenir. It's stunning.
