Farm Table for My Dining Room

I’m officially on the hunt for a new farm table for my dining room!  I’ve had my current dining table for over 25 years and I think I’m due. It’s held up well but I’m ready for a change. I prefer something a little more substantial and rustic than my current dining table. I’d also like a farm table that’s extendable so everyone can fit comfortably at one table for holiday gatherings. Here’s a roundup of tables that caught my eye at Houzz.

Gorgeousness!! I love this dining room! The farm table is narrower than what I currently have, which is good because when I raise the sides of my drop-leaf table, it practically fills the room. I’m lovin’ the natural wood of this table too.

This round table is too small for my purposes, but I like its curvy legs and this dining space is so quaint and sunny, I had to share it. I do like the dining chairs and I’m sure once I get a new farm table, I’m going to have to get new chairs to make it look right.

This pretty farm table has a natural wood top and white painted legs, which is a look I really like. The light fixtures are interesting, which is something else I need to think about as we get ready to give our dining room a makeover. I’ve never been crazy about the light in our dining room. It’s too small and doesn’t make any kind of statement whatsoever.

I love the rusticity of this farm table. Although I haven’t yet decided on an exact table type, I do know that I want a natural wood top.

Okay, so this table is too small but I love this little dining nook with its dark square table and primitive light fixture.

I admit, the first thing I noticed in this room was the gorgeous wood floors!  The farm table is a lighter shade which helps it stand out.

Although the table top here isn’t natural wood, I do think it’s pretty wearing a creamy coat of paint.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this roundup of farm tables from Houzz. I also hope to have a new dining table before Easter Sunday so the whole family can enjoy it when we all get together.

  1. Beautiful tables! There’s a lot to choose from! Let us know what you decide! I’d love a new dining room table since mine is beginning to wear out. But new kitchen counters are coming this year! Maybe in a few more years I’ll be working on the dining room.

  2. I enjoyed looking at the different inspirations. It makes me want to paint my farmhouse table but I don’t have the time right now! Too many other projects to do.

  3. All of these farmhouse table examples are really pretty, Jennifer. Our dining room table belonged to my husband’s mother and is a rectangle shape. A large round table would fit much better in the room but since it has significance, it is likely here to stay.

  4. I understand your need for a change. But your dining room table is very nice and so pretty decorated for Valentines Day. I can see why you might want a larger one for holidays though.

    Love this blog about dining room tables! We had our solid oak dining table for 45 years. We bought it as unfinished, put a light oak stain on it and then redid the finish after the kids had grown and gone. We loved that table. Unfortunately, we lost it, along with everything else, in the recent Valley fire. We are rebuilding and I still can’t get that table style out of my mind for the perfect dining room table. You have helped me realize that I need to think outside the box and be open to a new and maybe totally different look for our dining room.

    We just had a friend build us a dining room table and bench from a 1910 old barn. It’s amazing and truly beautiful, he’s going to make me a buffet also. I’m looking for chairs to go with it. I got some ideas from your posts here.
    He is also making me a 5 ft. office desk. I really never thought I would been into something as old as this but after seeing, I’m in love.

  7. Gorgeous examples of the farmhouse tables…I am sure you will find the perfect one for your dining room….

  8. So much inspiration, but I’m not going to lie I LOVE your table the most!! It’s simple, quaint & cozy..and I love the styling/color!!!


  9. They are all beautiful farm tables. Hope you find what you are looking for. We are remodeling our bathroom/laundary at the present. It’s go slow as usual. I can’t wait until it’s done. Have a great day!
