Way back in early summer I picked up this farmhouse table at the ECCO neighborhood garage sales (along with that first mini cabinet!).
Personally, I’m not a fan of the leaving the leaves on these tables. They are ten times more fabulous without their leaves. So I removed the leaves and saved them for a future project.
I took my inspiration for this table from this pin.
And accordingly, I painted the base in MMS milk paint in Boxwood. I purposely did no sanding at all because I wanted to maximize chipping for a beat up farm table look.
And I did end up with some fantastic chippyness.
And I love the green base with the beat up wood top.
I staged this table as a desk with a vintage Underwood and some old books in varying shades of green …
And with the most charming little chair …
Believe it or not, no one purchased this desk at the Carriage House sale. I’ve been trying to think of a spot for it in my own house, but I haven’t come up with anything yet. I’ll keep thinking about it though. In the meantime, how about you? Need a fabulous chippy farmhouse table?
