Cottage or Country

 Although it may not feel like it today, cottage season is just around the corner.

We have fabulous pieces that may help refresh and rejuvenate your cottage this spring. These pieces are also great accents for a country décor theme. The hutch and buffet is solid wood painted a lovely French blue. The two occasional tables are painted a very pretty grey-blue and the white wicker storage unit comes in handy anywhere a bit of extra storage might be needed (which, of course, is everywhere).

While you’re waiting for the fine weather to finally settle in, why not drop by the warehouse and see what might look terrific in your cottage or home.  We have the good stuff.

We’re at Table Tops

The May Court Club of Oakville is hosting the Table Tops Decorating and Entertaining Trends event on May 24-25 and we’re been invited to participate. HGTV celebrities Bryan and Sarah Baeumler will be featured and net proceeds will be donated to ROCK – Reach Out Centre for Kids, a non-profit organization working to support children, youth and families in our community.

Designers, decorators, upcyclers and event professionals will be displaying their creative table top trends and ideas.

The event runs from 9 – 4 each day and there’s a lovely café to help you, and some friends, make a day of it. Be sure and check out our display! For full details and tickets, click here.

Is This Ugly?

Or is it solid and well made?

A customer recently noted, “It’s a bit ugly,” when referring to this bedroom suite. Maybe.

We do try to carry on-trend pieces in the warehouse. Darker furniture in espresso-like finishes with brushed nickel hardware still sells very well. From time to time, though, we like to accept pieces that buck the trends because they are manufactured by reputable companies; they are solid wood construction; and they’re timeless in their design. This bedroom set was made by Stanley Furniture. It’s lighter wood tone, distinctive graining and rubbed brass hardware is quite stylish. For our DIYers it is a superb foundation for a shabby chic chalk paint application.

It’s different. It’s well-made. It’s the good stuff and it would be a shame to see it come to the end of its usefulness. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “One man’s beauty is another’s ugliness.” 

At It’s a Steal we see beauty in the well-made.
