Swedish Inspired Dining Room Table

I finally finished a table I've been working on, on and off for what felt like months. I've been "educating" myself through Pinterest, Google and Annie Sloan's website, and I'm realizing things I see and fall in love with are almost always Swedish. I think a lot of Swedish furniture and style gets passed off as French when it's not. I realize there is really nothing Swedish about the construction of my table and chairs but I really wanted to do something in the whites, light blues, and grays that remind me of Sweden. I didn't take a before picture, but it was your typical brown furniture. I took this picture in my not so lovely driveway.

 This is the kind of room I could see in my mind while painting this table. If only I had a place like this to use as my backdrop for photos :)
