It’s almost summer, and there’s not much else that beats a late afternoon backyard BBQ. It’s one of life’s simple joys, and not having the right outdoor patio table that meets your entertaining needs and fits in with your decor can make or break the party.
Okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic.
But finding the right table makes a huge difference. I’m all about the farmhouse trend, but a farmhouse-style outdoor table can be EXPENSIVE.
Like upwards of $1000 expensive.
Usually expensive table = higher quality.
But not always.
And sometimes you get that nice, seemingly high quality table without thinking about how it will actually meet your needs.
Like you get one too big or too small. Or one that doesn’t make the best use of your space, like I did.
Before you choose your table, consider what size is best for your space. Unless you plan on having a lot of big formal dining parties, probably don’t need a table that seats more than 6 people. Instead, when you have bigger parties, plan for other spaces for people to congregate.

Don’t forget to take the shape of your deck or patio into consideration. If you have a circular shaped patio a rounded oval or circle table will blend much better and appear more fluid with your design. Always ask yourself: does this make the best use of this space?
These outdoor farmhouse-inspired dining tables are all relatively inexpensive and are classic enough to mix and match with decor preference—from modern to country to rustic-industrial. Some include chairs or benches in the price, others do not.

The Best Farmhouse Inspired Outdoor Tables to Meet Your Entertaining Needs
This table is under $200 and is classic in it’s design and, depending on your chair choice, you can make it modern or country. It’s made of steel and has an umbrella hole already in place (which you may want because metal tables get hot quick—I like this one.)
This table is great because it can work inside AND outside. This patio table will go well with any mid-century modern decor as well as modern farmhouse. Reviewers were mostly pleased with it but did say the table top has a laminate look and feel to it. Laminate isn’t all bad—it is easy to wipe down and holds up to the fairly elements well. Still, if you want all wood this probably isn’t the table for you.
Tight on space? Then this is the patio table for you, and it is also under $200. It’s versatile, all acacia hardwood, and can work with any decor style.
This outdoor patio table combines metal legs with a wood top, which I love. As with any wooden surface you’ll want to be careful with an extensive sun and water, and I recommend using some teak sealer to really enhance the finish.
This farmhouse outdoor dining table is my ultimate favorite, and of course—like all furniture I like—it’s a bit more pricey than the other options I’ve listed. But, if you’re going for that Chip and Joanna Gaines farmhouse look, this is. And a nice wooden table like this for under $500 is still a pretty good deal.
Concrete anything is all the rage right now, but there’s just one teeny, tiny drawback with it.
This outdoor table will meet your rustic decor needs and it’s lightweight and made to endure all types of weather!
Target’s always on top of the latest home trends, and this year it’s no different. This table had me at its metal legs, but the darker wood finish on the top really helps to give off that industrial-modern-farmhouse vibe. Keep in mind that the top is faux-wood, but that does mean you don’t have to worry about warping and sun damage.
Here’s another classic farmhouse style outdoor table, only this one’s a little lighter in color. It has a warm pecan finish and goes great with anything white shades and wicker.
Another concrete outdoor table for your patio. This one is a good amount more pricey than the previous concrete option, and probably because the finish looks a bit more smooth and stone-like. If you already have the chairs you want to use then this patio table is a great deal!
I hope these tables inspired you to explore your own farmhouse-style decor in your backyard this summer. If you’ve found other farmhouse-style outdoor dining tables for a good price I’d love to see them! Post a comment and share your thoughts!
