Glastonbury weekend and farmhouse tables!

This time 2 years ago I was watching U2 on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2011.  Oh how things have changed.  Now I’m sitting at home thinking of exciting things to say about our oak and pine furniture here at Owen Pine and Oak in South East London, Kent, whilst my husband sends me pictures from ‘Hard Rock Calling’ in the Olympic Stadium.  You can imagine the response he is getting!!!

So…….this week I posted a picture on facebook of a painted 4’ X 3’ farmhouse table with a 40mm solid oak top.  The response has being great.  Is it because the chairs and table legs are painted in Farrow and Ball, ‘Skylight’ giving it that vintage, shabby chic look?  I hope we have made something that people like and not forgetting that we can paint our furniture in any Farrow and Ball colour; to suit your taste and home décor, or compliment other piece’s of oak and pine.

These tables are available in any size and are made to order, taking 2 weeks.  If you are interested in a piece or just need some more information please call us or pop in to have a look in our extensive barn showroom.  contact us

Last but not least we have started the renovations within our extensive barn showroom to incorporate tea rooms for adults and a kids room.  We appreciate how hard it is choosing your pine or oak furniture with the kids getting bored in a showroom so we hope to create a space for them to chill out in whilst parents make that final decision on their oak TV Unit. that will fit their 42” TV, that they never get to watch as they are actually last on the pecking order behind cbeebies, Ben 10, Spiderman and the rugby, (oh sorry is that just in my house!).
