Rustic Dining

There is something so appealing about a rustic dining table.  Whether it is scrubbed pine, a chippy painted surface, an old trestle table, weathered wood worn from years of use or a table made from old floorboards or scaffold planks, it just looks so inviting to me and is the perfect surface for serving good, wholesome, rustic food! Look at these lovely examples which I've interspersed with some divine looking food just to whet your appetites!

Till next time

  1. Sharon, I could literally dive in to every image...I want to live like this...I'm just panting over the simple beauty and comfort of this lifestyle. Happy Sunday. XO, Mona

  2. Sharon, this is a fab post. You put so much into it I hope everyone comes over to enjoy with you.
    I'm trying to find an old table for an outdoor space, just to give it character, you know. But, they are very hard to come by these days. xx's

  3. Hi Sharon,
    wow.. well this is wonderful I agree..nothing better than a long farm table (a little worn adds character). I've got one in my kitchen/great room and it's perfect for entertaining. My dinning room table is smaller and not a cozy so everyone prefers the farm/family style table.

    I'll be saving a few of these photos! These tables also look pretty with a burlap or linen runner.


  4. Imagine all the good stories told over those tables.

  5. Love rustic al fesco dining! In reality there would probably be loads of flys, but it's fun to dream!

  6. Rustic dining at it's best!! Beautiful images!

    gives a lot of warmth in the dining space
