A lovely country folding table

A lovely little table just sitting under a pile of barnboard in my favorite junking burrow.

There are almost no lights in this barn and I could just glimpse the antique paper top and it was stable and folding. Oh boy!

A mix of chalk paints and this lovely table is ready for a new life as a side table.

The table is available for sale in my etsy shop if you would like to give it the perfect home.

Size: 25"w x 14.5"d x 20.5"h



 the top of this table is a type of paper with age and wear spots that make it look like a tapestry. the sweetest cottage and woman out by her pond. i have lightly waxed the top to stop further wear and preserve the age it acquired.

the before, dirty and sad from being at the bottom of a pile

Have a great day,


  1. I love it! I have a similar one, and chalk paint seems a perfect solution.

  2. Oh how beautiful. Such a lovely scene and it cleaned up so beautifully. Great table. Thanks for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  3. I really like this table and the color of it is perfect... Would love it if you came by One More Time and share it
    Hope you can make it... if not this week I host every Sunday...Hope you can make it some time.

  4. Hi,
    I have a table just like this one that I got from my parents years ago. Now that I've seen yours, mine has a thin piece of plywood on the top so I'm going to try to take that off and see what's underneath. I'm sad that there's no recipe for the paint colour (other than "a little of this; a little of that) as the colour is perfect.
    Great job! and thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Hi Cathy
      Good luck with your table. I am not a great exact measurer when it come to paint, I think its a patience/excitement thing but this was quite close to a 50% chateau grey and 50% old white combo with annie sloan paint. the distressing and waxing is a purely individual thing i find so i will leave it at that for now. Thanks for visiting.


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
