Especially one that is a little bit rustic and elegant at the same time.
French style tables are full of charm – no matter what age they are.
Maybe it’s a table that has chunky weathered boards and simple lines
Or it might be one that wears a scalloped detailed apron
and has a smooth, hand rubbed patina from years of use.
I had planned to set a french inspired table and take some new photographs for this months share
but with family in town and a crazy busy and fun week, I thought I would share a few of our tables from posts from the past instead.
Antique French tables come in many shapes and sizes and styles
and though I have quite a few different tables in my home- I am not sure any of them are particularly antique and French but I have several that do have the look.
Outdoor Rustic Farmhouse
Our outdoor table is a little more farmhouse style than french so you could call it
a French Farmhouse style.
I love it’s more rustic look and the mixed width boards.
It has reclaimed chunky wood for a top and it wears each and every ding and
mismatched board proudly.
Since we used boards that were from another project- we didn’t have enough of the same sizes to create the top but I love the inconsistent look and lines that it has where we pieced each board together with another to create the length we needed.
Out in the cottage, there is a diminutive dining table
that has a beautiful carved apron, scalloped top and a rich dark patina
Though it shows years of use – it’s French lines are what really shows.
