Vintage Farmhouse table in the Kitchen

We have this sweet little vintage farmhouse table in the kitchen, but do not eat there.


I use it as an island and as a dessert service table at Christmas.

This is where I roll out my pie dough and sugar cookies for Christmas. Can't see much of the tabletop in this picture.

Mississippi Pecan pie ... the best ever.

Perfect height where I can pull up a stool and sit down. I cover the entire table top with my vintage Tupperware pastry mats when I make sugar cookie or pie.

I bought it maybe thirty years ago. 

The auctioneer was very reluctant to sell it to me for $12.00, but I am happy he did. 

I stripped the green and red paint off the top, and not able to get the red paint out of the oak wood grain, decided not to strip the legs. The top is not sealed or finished. 

Cute legs with old wooden casters. Just enough natural chipping in the old green paint to make them interesting.

Size: 2' x 3'.

Thanks for stopping by ... hope you will say hello before you leave.

  18. Audrey, I just love your green-legged table and the wonderful stories about it. I even like the red paint that won't come off the oak. I guess oak is pretty stubborn that way. Hope you have a blessed week-end!
