Happy New Year

Have you missed me?  Whenever the boys are out of school, Terri gets time off which means she neglects my blog.  Never fear, I will be back in the New Year with great finds!

Look what I have for you...

It has been a busy few weeks here at Green Oak.  Let me catch you up with what I've been doing.

First, do you remember the desk from the last post? Here it is in it's refinished glory. Nice isn't it??
Next we have a GORGEOUS black harvest table.  Look at those nice chunky legs!  My wife says it is fine if I call these legs chunky.
Do you need a splash of color in your home?  How about a piece of stained glass.  We have a nice selection to choose from and here are a few of the new pieces.
 Do you need a buffet for the upcoming holiday meals?  We have them in black and white.  Here is a pretty black one.
If you prefer more traditional furniture, we have that too.  These Chicago buffets will make a wonderful statement in your home.  Plus they hold a lot!

Our counters are very versatile!  Use them in your kitchen, basement, bar, or for your plasma tv.  We have many in stock to choose from and you can always talk to me about a specific size you may need.

Are you in need of small pieces to finish out a bedroom?  Come in and see what we have.  This cute little black dresser is perfect for the guest room!
And you have to have a nightstand.
Corner TV stand in our white finish.  

Do you remember this piece??

Here it is in the works.  Mirror in and paint is going on.  .

And here it is finished!
I found some wonderful sheets of tin.  Now to decide what to use them in.  What would you like to see?

That wraps up for now.  I'll have two more truckloads next week.  Wonder what I'll get?

November finds

Where has this year gone?  Hard to believe it is the first part of November.

If you came out to Green Oak's Holiday Open House this past weekend, THANK YOU.  If you didn't make it out, here are just a couple of pictures of what you are missing.
Now, on to a few things that I have in this week.

First, a wonderful Bungalow Buffet with stain glass doors.

Next we have a set of chairs.  2 arm chairs and 4 straight back.

Red TV cabinet with tin on the doors.

White Vanity.  Always a nice piece for a girls bedroom.

Now we'll see some pieces in the works:
  • This desk has nice pull out shelves behind the doors.  
  • sofa tables

  • Chair Benches

Fun at auctions!

This past week has been great for finding unique items for you.

Blue Couch & Chair
This pair will be great when re-upholstered.
Can you guess what I'll be making out of this next piece?
It will become a mirror!  Watch for the completed project.

Set of 6 chairs

Great table legs, just waiting for a new top.

Table made out of old legs and a new top. 

It is going to get colder soon which means indoor activities.  Would make a great game table.

Neat old table

And even a BOAT
Truly a decorator approved item.  This boat is perfect for your nautical themed restaurant!  I can just see it hanging from a ceiling.

Gorgeous Mantle
This a stunning example of a mantle from the 1800's.  Can you imagine this stripped of the paint?

Plus lots more that I haven't unloaded yet.  We'll be posting again tomorrow!

We are packed!!!

The store is filled to the brim with great items for you and it was hard to choose just a few to showcase. 

Black Liquor/China Blind door cabinet $470
Beautiful liquor or china cabinet painted in our black finish. 

Stacked Bookcase $550
Wonderful example of a classic piece.  This stacked bookcase is sure to hold a lot of your treasures.

Oak Desk
One of the nicest desks we have had in a long time!  Extra deep to give you room for your computer and still have room to work!  Refinished by our Amish carpenters to bring this desk back to its original condition.

Black Counter with a cherry top
We've had requests for our counters (you can also use them as islands or bars) to have a cherry top.  Here you go!  Painted black and has an open back.

White Vanity with mirror $295
Do you need a vanity for your daughters bedroom or are you in a house like my wife with all boys and need to add a girly touch to your home?  Then this vanity is for you!  Nice drawers and big mirror.  Although in our house, I'm sure it would soon be taken over by army men and blocks. I keep telling my wife that one day she'll miss the mess the boys make, but she just scowls at me and picks up more dirty socks.
