It’s getting more and more difficult to find primitive farmhouse furniture with that charm and character. I personally think that’s why painting furniture became so popular. There were so many “brown” pieces of furniture but it was difficult to find painted furniture in a primitive style.
So, I believe that people decided to create their own furniture using paint and the brown furniture that is readily available. I know that’s what started me with painting furniture.
Anyway, if you look long enough, you can still come across a great piece of farmhouse furniture with its original paint. (Or at least farmhouse furniture that was painted long ago) Such was my luck recently when I found this bakers table with its green paint.
It has great bin pulls on the drawer and I love that the top isn’t painted.
Since we are at the peak of summer, the bowl of nectarines was a perfect prop for the top of the table.
I love all the naturally worn areas on the legs and on the edges of the drawer.
This little table will be headed to Stone Soup Antiques in Ballston Spa soon. Although, I must admit, it’s going to be difficult to part with this lovely find.
