A Vintage Pine Trestle Table

I got this gorgeous vintage pine table from my good friend. It's one of those 1970s pieces, made during the second colonial revival. It had a deep brown stain, which in my experience, is a nightmare to remove. Luckily, when it came to me it had already been sanded, so I didn't need to go through that frustration. I refinished the top in a diluted mixture of pickled oak and English chestnut, giving the table a soft, warm patina. I sealed it in a high gloss for a sleek finish. The base is painted in Navajo white, one of my favorite creamy whites, and then waxed. The table is 6ft x 3ft. Perfect for a new home before the Holidays!

  1. Love your vintage table!!! Pinned:)

  2. Gorgeous! I have the exact same table - I picked it up for $40 at GW... except I ruined the top as my hubby cut a hole for my sewing machine, I needed a large flat surface for sewing. The top even has the underside rails for those extra slide in End pieces but they did not come with the table. Now I'm thinking about getting a new top for it, I just love the creamy white on the bottom section!

  3. This is a gorgeous table! Beautifully done! I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,

  4. Is this table sold? I would like to buy it!
