Vintage French Pastry Table

9.04.2019

Today I'm sharing my recent antique mall find. Many of you who have been following me know I was using an old small butcher block in the center of my kitchen, but I really wasn't loving it and it wasn't quite large enough to really use as more work space. I removed it several months ago, but thought maybe I would come across something else some day. Then while shopping last week I came across that something else and it's perfect.

Here is my vintage French pastry table.



After I found it I measured it at the store and came home and taped out the size of it on the floor to make sure it would work. I walked around the taped area as if the table was actually there to see if I would get tired of going around it. After doing that for a day I figured it was fine and we went back to pick it up.

I love the marble top and all the imperfections of the base. The base is cast iron and quite heavy.

I looked up other small pastry tables on line and found many to be quite expensive so I knew the price of this one was quite good and Mr. Savvy was willing to get it for my upcoming birthday.
Of course I had to style the top with a bit of fall decor.

This is not sponsored, but this candle smells really good without being overpowering. I have bought several candles from Antique Candle Co. and they are all good.

Some one or maybe several people have painted the base over the years and it's chipping away, I love the blue color that is showing.

If I can't have a real French farmhouse kitchen then I will just add things to this kitchen to make it feel a bit like one.





Now, I just need to clear it off so I can use it and no, not for making pastries.


Hope y'all have a great week!

  1. Do you read Parisienne Farmgirl's blog. Her family bought a house built in 1980 in Door County, Wisconsin, and they are turning back the clock on it to make it into an old French farmhouse. It's a slow process because they have six children; she home schools them; bakes and cooks everything from scratch; and she has a huge garden. She also has a Youtube channel. I have enjoyed watching their progress. She gets a whole lot more out of a 24 hour day than most people. Her house is somewhat rustic, but enjoyable. You might like her.
