Dining Table Search

I've been searching my pictures for some dining table inspiration. I REALLY need a new table, preferably before May. I love the look of these old or reproduction tables. I've found ones I like here, but they are around $6000!!!!!! That's without chairs. I don't think so. I really want a farmhouse style table. Pottery Barn has options, but I'd like solid wood, if I can afford it.

While on vacation I happened on to Paula Deen's new furniture line. I really liked the details. The store there in Kansas was going to check on delivery options for me in California. I never heard back from them. Must not have been possible. So, onto the internet we went. Low and behold, practically next door to me is a store that carries her line. So, guess what? In about 4 weeks I'll have my new dining room set. Here's a peek.

We are mixing up the chairs a little bit between the two styles and an armchair option. I can't wait!


  1. Just stumbled across your blog. Love the new table....lucky you! Did you get the chairs as well?


  2. we got our farmhouse table (solid wood) from Williams & Sononma and it looks as good today as it did 20 years ago and it has survived 5 boys!

  3. That Southern living pic is just my style. A balance between rustic and elegant with a bit of contemporary mixed in there. Love that.

  4. Hi Karen,
    There's an award waiting for you at my blog. Do with it as you wish, but wanted others to be blessed by your blog as I am.

  5. Very pretty! My dream is one day to have a dining room big enough to have one of those 10'+ tables for everyone just to hang out one. Love the old look of them.

  6. hi karen...love the table! i have my parents harvest table which has been in our family now for 40 some years........yikes.

  7. Karen, make sure you pop over and get the award I gave you. Thanks for all your wonderful pics of inspiration!


  8. Oh lovely! Congrats! I have Paula Deen spoons...but sadly no furniture. I desperately want a new table too (ahem, and couch, etc.) but until there isn't a daily doodle in marker on every flat surface in my home...I'm stuck with the ugly one from my inlaws. :)

    We have a store here called Montana Furniture Traders and they make furniture out of old barn beams and reclaimed wood. I could walk in there and drop my life's savings in the blink of an eye.

  9. my husband makes farm tables - if you are interested still....give me an e-mail:

    btw: I really am so glad you posted about Alabama stitch- that is exactly how I view my business

    your blog is so nicely put together


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Please say hello while you are here. It would be so wonderful to meet you.
