Do you enjoy those quizzes that pop up online or are printed in magazines? I’m afraid we don’t have a list of questions for you today, but take a look at these three farm table style options and monitor your heart rate. Which is most exciting to you?
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 farm 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!
Another option would be to use chairs as your accent pieces:
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, yard sales and in re-sale newspapers and websites.
