Vintage Picks of the Week – Fall for Drop Leaf Tables

Vintage Picks Of The Week

It’s time for our series, Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our decor, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.

The Picks this week are brought to you by Dot at Attic and Barn Treasures. I have a serious love for wood. Tables make me drool and drop leaf tables can make me absolutely swoon! I could become a table hoarder extraordinaire given just the slightest chance. I hope you enjoy the three lovelies I found for you this week!

Vintage Brandt Swing Drop Leaf Mahogany Dining Table

Vintage Brandt Drop Leaf Mahogany Table from Aardvark Antiques

What I Like About It: I just love the styling! From the thin legs to the graceful curves of the scalloped edge and the beautiful grained top.

How I Would Use It: Perfect for a smaller dining room and perfect for when extra space is needed for a large party. Fold those sides down and store against your dining room wall for use as a side table.


Large Antique Scottish Barley Twist Oval Oak Gateleg Drop Leaf Table

Antique Scottish Barley Twist Oak Gate Leg Drop Leaf Table from HeatherbraeAntiques

What I Like About It: My first drop leaf table was a barley twist oak table very similar to this one. In the past these tables were easy to find but are becoming harder to locate – especially in good condition!

How I Would Use It: This would make a great addition to a farm house kitchen! Just the thing for making cookies, rolling out dough or just chatting with the neighbor over a cup of coffee. Close it up and let it serve double duty as a stand for your vintage kitchen gadgets or a pail of flowers.


Danish Modern Mid Century Teak Drop Leaf Sewing Table

Danish Modern Mid Century Teak Drop Leaf Sewing Table from AtomicThreshold

What I Like About It: I am always in need of storage for current sewing or yarn projects and this would serve that purpose nicely! Love the texture of the basket against the smooth wood! The drop leaf makes it extra useful for those times you need just a little more room.

How I Would Use It: Small enough to fit any space it could be placed in either your sewing room or right next to your family room chair as a side table of sorts. Store your project in the basket and sewing items in the drawer between crafting times. 


So there you have it! My three favorite vintage picks for the week! Make sure to check back to see what items are on the Pick List next week!Hand pointing right | Antique Design Illustrations

  1. Lovely selections this week, Dot. You love drop leaf tables….I have a thing for cupboards. We should find a friend who covets chairs and we could open an antique inn. 🙂
