I love farmhouse tables too! Just don't have the space but I think they are just the best.

Oh, me too! I live in a pretty new area, so they're pretty hard to come by here - but a girl can dream!

I just recently did a post on the farmhouse table too! I'm going to re-do my 18yr old one that we've had since my children we're wee ones...so there is a bit of history with it already(drawing underneath by my children, etc.).

Love me a farm table. I mean the patina, life it has lived, right? Oh and give me some painted chairs to go with...maybe a Robins Egg Blue?

I love them too. My kitchen table is a small white farmhouse table actually handmade by a farmer in NC. I love the uneven boards that make u the top and the chips in the paint. ♥

You've pulled some great inspirational photos! My dining room is small, but when I saw the Amish harvest table of my dreams, I knew I would make it work. And it does. I adore it every day!!

Love all these images... I especially love the beautiful chandeliers or lamps hanging low over the tables. So cosy yet glam :)

I'm going through this industrial metal chair phase myself right now. I even asked my readers a few weeks ago to send me links if they knew where to buy one. Found a great one on overstock.
These old blue ones you posted are amazing! I would love to find some of those at an antique show. I would run and tackle them like the last bottle of water in a drought. :0
