Weathered Wood Finished Farmhouse Drop Leaf Table
Hi Everyone, I should probably call this post “The many changes of a White Farmhouse Drop leaf Table”, I am pretty sure this new weathered wood finish is my favorite and won’t be changing it anytime soon.
This farmhouse round drop leaf kitchen table has been around for some time, it has seen a few color changes, along with being placed in a few places of our home. One thing I love about this Drop leaf table is can be used in a couple different ways by simply dropping the leaves to be used as a console table, like we did here in the living room in front of the window to display some of our favorite home accent decor pieces.
As I mentioned above this Farmhouse table has seen many changes, although I did like the all white, I really do love the new refinish of the weathered wood tops of the table and seats, What you think?
Farmhouse Drop Leaf Table a Weathered Wood Refinish
These chairs have been recovered many times, instead of recovering them again, it was decided to give these wood farmhouse chairs seats the same refinish as the table top, but when taking the coverings off of the seats the wood that was on there had seen better days and was a little thinner than what I wanted.
Repurposed Oak TV Tray’s into Farmhouse Chair Seats
These chairs were a little unstable and was in need of a little reinforcement, new seats were made using the old seats as a pattern, they were traced and cut to size and routed around the edges.
Tip: If you are looking to add new chair seats, but don’t want to pay the price of oak wood, try looking at thrift stores, garage sales, we happened to have these Oak TV trays that we never used.

Directions How to Paint a Weathered Look Finish
The table top of the Farmhouse table, chair seats were all done in the same weathered wood technique.
All Pieces were given a fresh coat of Kilz Premium Stain Blocker Primer.
Chalk Smoked Pearl Paint: was applied worked in long strokes of a dry brush, blending and working it into the white Kilz primer
*Note When applying the second coat of primer, I didn’t let the primer completely dry, the reason I did this is way is, when dry brushing the smoked pearl, I was able to take the color down into lighter shade in some areas while dry brushing and blending the smoked pearl it into the tabletop.
Once this layer was completely dried it was lightly sanded with 220 sandpaper.
Decorative Glaze Java Brown was applied with rag and lightly sanded
To finish Annie Sloan White Wax was applied to all parts of the farmhouse table and chairs.
