How To Paint a Farm Table You’ll Love

6 Jan

What farm table style do you like the best?  Here are three different options and some supply ideas that can help you create a beautiful and functional space for eating, crafting, homework, sewing – and whatever else you do at your kitchen table!

1. Traditional. 


For this look you could find an unpainted farm table, (or a finished one that you sand) and then rub it with our clear or colored Old Village Paste Stain.  One coat of paste stain provides a low-luster, hand-rubbed patina. Subsequent coats provide greater depth of colour, greater surface protection and higher gloss. Paste stain can also be buffed or polished. White provides a beautiful bleached-wood or pickled effect. You can choose from these finishes:

2. Shabby Chic.  This style offers a sealed but natural top and a painted base.  (I love this one! It’s what I have at my house!) For this you’d use the sealing directions above on the top portion, and choose a glaze, white pickle finish or paint for the bottom portion.

3. Accent table.  For this table you’ll pick a bright color to add joie de vivre to your space!

Choose from any of these colors:I think antique yellow, rittenhouse red or antique sage green might be fun for an accent piece!


I found my farm table that seats twelve at an unfinished wood furniture store for a very reasonable price.  You can look for something similar near you, or keep an eye out at antique malls.  Do you have a farm table in your home? We’d love to see photos! Happy new year!
