It is the original distressed green paint that captures ones eye in this traditional country farm table with trestle base. The top is made of 6 planks with gouges, marks, stains and knots that all add character and appeal while revealing the years of use this table received, likely as a work table. The double stretcher and wide platform feet of the base give this table strength and stability. The two stretchers, legs and top can be separated for easier transport. This sturdy and versatile table has been restored and waxed; it will make a great desk, kitchen or dining table. While the top has a minor age related twist to the wood, it is still level for work and dining/drinking. Please examine photos to appreciate the aged patina and wear to the top and base.
