After a long day out on the farm, it is nice to come home to a hot supper, belly up to the table, and eat till your heart and tummy are content. And a must have for any farmhouse is a sturdy farmhouse table to have hearty home cooked meals served from.
This morning's farm excursion is another trip through Pinterest. I hopped on my tractor for a cruise around the website – a cup of hot steaming coffee in one hand and the other hand on the wheel. No wind today to whip me out of my seat. Actually the sun is out – looks like a nice day!
There are so many versions of the farmhouse table – some long enough for eight chairs and smaller ones to seat four. Back in the day these tables were used for other things other than eating at. My good friend, Doris (Dogwood Designs) has a wonderful farm table in her kitchen that her daddy used to cut meat on. Her daddy was a butcher by trade. There is a split down the table that the blade would run down. I loved hearing the story behind her cherished possession that nobody else in her family even wanted. Unbelievable, but true! After much cleaning, it is now the focal spot in her adorable farmhouse kitchen. (Maybe Doris will allow me to take photos of it soon to share on here).
The table below reminds me a bit of my dining room table because, to me, it looks more like a desk. This kitchen isn’t all white either … thinking of you girls who don’t like all white furniture.
I am looking for a farm table to replace my table that I currently have in the dining room. My table is actually from a post office and has apple green legs and a galvanized top.
It will make a great desk for my computer. But for now, it will do. No rush…I like it just fine….
All of a sudden I am craving biscuits and gravy with a side of crispy bacon! Anyone have a good biscuit recipe?
