Introducing The Newest Cottage Chick!!

The Old Oak Cottage is excited to introduce Crystal Womack of ReDesign as our in house designer. Crystal comes to us with an abundance of creativity and design expertise. She prides herself on the ability to "ReDesign and ReCreate" her clients homes by using furniture and accessories they already own while introducing one of a kind pieces. Her love for  wonderful flea market finds, antique reproductions,  unusual and interesting accessories, custom painted furniture, and one of a kind  statement pieces makes this collaboration a wonderful addition to both of our business's.

Crystal's love for accessories has taken her career from personal shopping and wardrobing to hosting private trunk shows showcasing handmade jewelry from individual designers. She was handpicked to assist an interior designer from Lexington Kentucky. They worked together for 6 years in Indiana and Kentucky until her move to the Houston area in 2006.  Once acclimating to her new home, Crystal began to rekindle her love and passion for home design believing that having a Designer assist in creating homes we love , should be affordable to all.  Thus, ReDesign was created. Crystal designs for clients in the Atascocita, Humble,and the Kingwood area.

Crystal will be onsite each Friday from 10-5. When you come by to meet her, be sure to bring any questions, or pictures of the space in your home you are wanting to ReDesign. Together, you will create the home you have always wanted, one unique piece at a time.

Freshening Things Up!

Marci made it back from Round Top and thus that meant it was time to change things up around The Old Oak Cottage!

We have many lovely pieces of jewelry and key antique spoon key rings to choose from!

Each room in the cottage got a new look.

Need a chaise lounge? How lovely it would be to lay on and read a book in the afternoon sun.

Right now we are having a fall clearance sale. Everything on the center table is 50% off and would make great stocking stuffers or teacher gifts!

I just love this display that Marci did!
This is my new favorite room! We refer to it as the turquoise room.
Who does not love a good candle and let me tell ya Tyler candles are some of the best!  

Just wonderful eye candy every where ya look!

The turquoise furniture was painted by Altard.

All clothing is 50% off as well ladies! 

Yep, the turquoise room is just dreamy!

 There is alot to see and we will be posting pics of The Showroom very soon!

Come on out and say hi if you have not been in awhile! Lots of fun coming up at  The Old Oak Cottage and Showroom to include the addition of our very own In House Designer!
 Crystal will be on site each Friday from 10-5. When you come by to meet her, be sure to bring any questions, or pictures of the space in your home you are wanting to ReDesign.

Home from Round Top & Back to Normal . . . . Almost

Phew, I made it through another Round Top Antique Week!  Yes, it was again a successful, fun and very exhausting week.  Here is just a few pictures of what The Cottage booth at LaBahia Antique Show looked like:

As usual, it was packed full of antique and vintage goodies.

I had fun creating this quirky area that featured Minnow Bucket Hanging Lights, cotton mill canisters, pitch forks, a bottle dryer and fans.  What you can't see is the awesome Bowling Lane table that was surrounded by all this.  I have no idea WHY I didn't take a picture of that.  It drew alot of attention and, of course, it sold! 
I totally loved the aqua chairs - they went pretty fast.  I do still have the turquoise head board bench.  It now resides in front of the showroom.  My hubby built my walls for me.  The front was old screen doors I had inserted lace panels into, and the back and side were louvered shutters (easy to hang stuff on).  On the other side I had a great old floral screen.  I kept the screen for display, and it is now in the cottage.
As usual, vintage and antique kitchen items were a big hit.  I sold most of the items in this picture.
I also loved the china hutch.  I had it painted by Altar'd, as well as the aqua bedroom set; I always run out of time to finish all my projects before the show.  The green stenciled table and shabby white chairs went on the last day.  My neighbors up there were starting to say the green table was jinxed.  I had it up there twice before, and purchased it from Lori of Southern Grace who had it up there the show before that.  I DID practically give it away, but at least it will finally have a new home.
Pamela and I have put the cottage and showroom back together, mostly.  There are still a lot of pictures and mirrors to be hung and other neat stuff to be put out.  As for me, I almost fill human again.

Come see us soon,
