I know I already blathered on and on about the Design*Sponge home tour of Nikole Herriott of forty-sixth at grace and her adorable picnic table in the kitchen (and the sweet story behind it).

I love it. What can I say?

However, since then I've noticed several others -- other great-looking traditionally outdoor picnic tables being used as indoor dining tables.

Read on to see more photos of this dining area trend. Maybe the indoor picnic table alternative would work in your kitchen or dining room.

Can you even believe this lovely white-washed dining table, found on Nesting Place (from the home of Angela of The Painted House), is an old picnic table purchased for $30? Angela used a layered painting technique to fancy it up a bit. Gorgeous!

This standard picnic table, inside the home of Mandi at Organizing Your Way, works really well in her modern and minimalist kitchen. Complements the butch block countertops so nicely.

Abbey over at Aesthetic Outburst painted this thrifted picnic table so adorably in black gloss with a gold stripe, I could totally see this being used indoors.

A typical picnic table can be an affordable way to add a little character to your home and seat a family indoors at mealtime. Such a smart and thrifty idea!

What do you think of this indoor picnic table trend -- yes or no?
