Our New Farm Dining Table

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

When we remodeled our kitchen, we knew we needed a new dining room table. We searched for months and never found anything we loved. Luckily, we came in contact with a local furniture maker/designer, Patrick Davis, who builds custom farm tables. We met with him in December and fell in love with his work. We told him we wanted a rustic, solid wood, farm table with two large benches. We saw a few previews along the way and every time I got more excited about our table.

On Saturday, we got the call that our table was finished and was ready to be delivered. The table is perfect, just what we had in mind. The base of the table is built out of wood from an old bridge that collapsed over the Great Salt Lake. How cool is that? I love that our table has a story behind it. It is rustic, solid, and has lots of character. The dark wood contrasts nicely with the white cabinets and floors. We love it!

I love the design underneath the table and benches. It adds a little something extra. We plan on buying two chairs for both ends, but we have to find the right ones. I am on the hunt! We are glad we have more space for our guests. Come dine with us anytime!

  1. I’m a sucker for farm tables. I bought one for a house he were suppose to build and then we opted to purchase another home…my farm table didn’t fit in that one and I was heartbroken. Your table is beautiful.

  2. Absolutely breathtaking! There is nothing more warm, inviting and comforting than a beautiful piece of wood. And your beautiful new farm table is all of the above and then some. Just love it!

  3. Your table is absolutely beautiful! It goes so well with the rest of your home’s design. I love it!

  4. It’s just gorgeous! Looks so much like the dining room table that I grew up eating on! Only not nearly such an intriguing story behind it! ENJOY!

  5. Now that is lovely! I love the dark wood that pairs perfect with the wall color. Very nice contrast there. Looks like your dream kitchen.

  6. Oh my goodness… I just love that table! The blend of modern and farm/country style is absolutely stunning.

  7. Oh, I love it! The dark wood and the rustic look of the piece is great, plus you have a really cool story to go with it. Happy dinning!

  8. When you say Bridge over the Great Salt Lake, do you mean the Lucin Cutoff Railroad Trestle? There’s a pretty cool exhibit at the Ogden railroad museum about that wood along with the rest of US Railroad history. They also have the Browning Classic Car and Rifle history museums there as well.
    Where can I see more from this table maker?

    1. I am not sure on the exact bridge, but I can ask. Patrick doesn’t have a website yet, but is working on one. He makes a lot of furniture for CG Sparks. It is a store downtown SLC.

  9. It’s lovely Maria. From what I can see it has some sturdy legs, most important part of a table! Ask me, i have 4 kids LOL I have a big farmhouse type table too, with one bench and 4 chairs. It’s the best and most sturdy we’ve ever had.

  10. Love the table. Particularly like the contrast of wood colors also. Aren’t you afraid of the benches scratching or marring the finish on the floor. One contractor down and two to go on remodeling my den and kitchen.

  11. Gorgeous, stunning, exactly what I would want!!! I love your house!! (and I haven’t even seen all of it yet, lol!) YET!!
