My Scandinavian farm table

It started with a craigslist find 8 years ago. Three small, crafty children had made my table look like I liked to tap dance in heels while spilling nail polish remover for flair all over the table top.

I bought some 1×12 pine boards last year but hadn’t taken the time to finish them yet. I just wasn’t sure what I really wanted I guess and felt uninspired.

Last weekend that all changed.

My daughter painted the base with chalk paint;


I sanded each board for at least 1/2 hour. So the edges and top felt like they’d been worn smooth for 100 years.


Then we stained it with 4 different colors and chose our favorite. The unexpected winner;


Grey and dark wax…

I cannot say enough how much I love this table now. It really does remind me of the tables I’ve seen in old farm houses!! It’s really soft and the wood smells so good.


Time to eat!
