Wow Us Wednesday-The Old Oak Cottage

Since my house drives me nuts right now let's go and visit The Old Oak Cottage in Huffman! This is one of my fave lil' shops and we have been here before but it has been awhile so be prepared for MAJOR picture overload y'all!

In the cottage there is some major chandy love going on.

A smaller version of the previous antique chandy. This would be soo pretty in a bathroom I think with blue gray walls and white marble counter tops.

This light fixture I had actually considered bringing home on my last visit to put in our toilet room in the master bath but mom gave me a chandy instead. I am sure it will find a lovely home soon. The ladies actually have two of them.
I love this aqua colored frame.

This cream buffet is making me want to paint mine cream even more. Maybe I will take the plunge here shortly.
Now on to the real reason I just HAD to stop by The Old Oak Cottage. Marci just built this extra space and had their grand opening this past weekend but since I was elbow deep in floor glue I missed it.

Come on in won't you!

Your attention is drawn straight up to this fabulous ceiling! I wish the ceilings in my house were this awesome! I may have to hunt down a ceiling fan like that one.

This space is awesome. Do you see that bench back there? Let's take a closer look.

Did you realize it was made from two antique chairs!!?? How neat is that! This is the work of 

Jennifer of Metamorphose. I do not think she has a blog but I wanted to be sure to give her a shout out because her items are GORGEOUS!!!

I forgot to ask Marci if that wire laundry hamper was up for grabs. I would love one of those.

This spot is one of my faves. That light fixture is just too awesome and if we had a larger kitchen and a huge island this light fixture would so be mine.

I love the legs of the table. It is just fabulous!

Littliest liked the office area. I need to find an old map like this one for The Hubster's office.

This is the light fixture hanging in that space. It is an old plane propeller and just totally cool!

Thanx for coming along with me! I could have spent all day in the new space Marci has created! It truly is beautiful and I found out she may be adding some more little cottages. Now if only I can make time to paint some more pieces than I would sooo want a space here!! Marci truly has my dream job and you can tell how much pride she takes in her shops!! Thanx for letting me take some pics Marci!
If ya live in the area you MUST stop by The Old Oak Cottage! I promise you will not be disappointed.

Now off to put my boys to bed and then flip thru the new Ballard catalog that came today. Have a wonderful night and thanx for stopping by!
