Shabby Chic Dining Table

A shabby chic dining table is the perfect table for your kitchen or dining area. The nice thing about shabby chic is that it can be added to almost any décor, and if your primary theme is shabby chic, it doesn’t take a lot of coaxing to rehabilitate a table to your kitchen. A color change, a tea-dyed table runner or a primitive table center arrangement can help blend almost any table style into your dining area.

Where to Find Shabby Chic

Yard sales, estate auctions and flea markets are good places to find shabby chic furnishings. The best tables for shabby chic are tables made of solid wood rather than department store particle board furnishings. You can work with the latter, but they won’t be your best choice. Real wood, metal or glass are your best choices for shabby chic. You can even purchase unfinished wood furniture and quickly turn it into shabby chic. Apply layers of differently colored paint, letting each layer dry between coats. Make the last coat of paint be the color you want in your dining area. Lightly sand corners and areas that would receive wear during normal use allowing color from the lower layers to show at the edges. This simulates the way older furniture was often refurbished, and the way it wears over time.

Purchasing Ready-Made Shabby Chic

If you have little time for the treasure hunt of searching for the perfect piece through junk shops, yard sales and estate auctions, you can purchase ready-made shabby chic. A quick browse of Etsy or Pinterest will turn up hundreds of lovely tables and table treatments.

Make Your Existing Table Shabby Chic

If you have a dining table but you don’t want to change its finish, you can quickly turn it into a shabby chic dining table by adding a table runner or tablecloth. Age a white tablecloth by dying it using coffee or tea. The resultant color will be that soft, off-white that’s often seen in heirloom tablecloths. Add some mason jar salt and pepper shakers or a decorated mason jar centerpiece to complete the look.

What we are looking for:

Construction:

A shabby chic dining table is often crafted out of solid pine, mango, or rubber wood in order to create an anchor piece of kitchen furniture that can last for decades. You'll find lots of options that showcase distinct design features on the four legs, such as cabriole or fluted legs, scrollwork, intricate moldings, or even carved medallions. There are some shabby chic dining tables that contain trestle-style or X-shaped bases with stone table tops as well. For most wood options, the knots of the wood are fully on display or there might be a two-toned look with the table top painted a different color than the base. Design expert Sheila Bridges suggests opting for a shabby chic dining table in a sandstone or antique grey finish that will fit seamlessly in neutral contemporary kitchens. Some tables may come with extension leaves to make the table longer for entertaining.

Size:

Interior designer Shawn Henderson recommends choosing a rectangular shabby chic dining table for larger kitchen spaces that easily accommodates eight people when you're hosting a dinner party. On average, rectangular shabby chic dining tables are anywhere from 55 to 75 inches in length with long table tops that typically sit on four legs. When these tables have extension leaves in them, they work well for large formal dining spaces and can usually sit up to 10 people. You will also find some round or oval-shaped shabby chic dining tables that often sit on pedestal bases that measure between 28 to 35 inches wide. This design works well in smaller kitchens. It depends on the structure of the dining chairs you choose to fit underneath, but most shabby chic dining tables sit between 30 to 35 inches off the ground.

Additional features:

Whether you opt for something new or a vintage piece, shabby chic dining tables make an inspired choice for those looking for longevity as they can always be stripped down and refurbished. There are lots of shabby chic dining tables that come with butterfly or self-storing extension leaves that allow you to change the length of your table if needed. Poonam Khanna suggests opting for a dining table with a special veneered top as it will add stain and water resistance which is ideal for families. If you're always looking for more storage space, choose a shabby chic dining table design with drawers, storage, or shelves built underneath the tabletop. There are also some styles available that come with matching chairs or benches to complete your entire kitchen look.
