Rustic Farmhouse Table in ASCP Old White and Provence

Today I am sharing a farmhouse table that I have been working on. I love farmhouse tables. 


First I started out with a base coat of ASCP Provence and then ASCP Old White. I waxed with Annie Sloan soft wax and distressed in just a few places to let the Provence show through.  


The before was part of a two piece open hutch that I picked up for $25. The dated forest green hutch part was damaged around the crown moulding and too short. I didn't like the curved front and flush back of the butcher block so I ended up just using the table base with drawer.


It was easy enough to unscrew the butcher block top and cut some pine planks for a new top. Some sanding, then I used Minwax wood conditioner. Finally I stained them with Minwax Early American, added 3 coats of poly and used the same pocket screws to re-attach the top.


I haven't found the perfect knobs for the drawer so I am using these iron ones for now. We moved the big white office armoire upstairs to my hobby room so I am keeping the table in this spot for now. 


We get soooo much light from the skylights, windows and patio doors in this area of our family room.


The turquoise beads were originally a strand of red wood Christmas beads that I spray painted turquoise. The aqua mason jar holds flowers clipped from our Rose of Sharon bush. 


I think this farmhouse table could easily be used in many different locations in our home. It is the perfect height for a small desk or sofa table.


It perfectly suits the rustic farmhouse / lakehouse vibe I am striving for in our home.

Thanks for stopping in! While I haven't been busy on the blog recently, I have been working behind the scenes organizing and maintaining our home, just nothing overly blog worthy. I am enjoying being off for the summer, spending lots of time with family, and reading into the wee hours of the morning. Later in the week I have a pair of barstools to share that I picked up for $5 and painted. Hope you are enjoying your summer. Hard to believe summer is half way through!

  4. Can't beat white with a stained top! In fact my computer table that I'm sitting at right now looks just like yours except the legs are tapered and not turned.
