This afternoon, in a few down minutes, we assembled an island for my kitchen using an old barn gate and a metal bottom from a work bench. I needed a very small "island-ette" for the center of the kitchen. I have no counter space by the refrigerator and I constantly have to walk back and forth taking items from the refrigerator when I am cooking. This solves the problem. The hardest part was picking from all our wood stash!
The old metal bottom was a work bench and we just removed the metal top and replaced it with the barn wood. It's very sturdy and I put two hooks at the ends so that I have a place to hand dish towels, etc. The bottom is sprayed with Rustoleum Hammered Brown.
The island measures 22 inches wide and 42 inches in length. It fits perfectly! After cleaning, waxing and polyurethane, I can't wait to use it!
Casters aid in moving and there is a lever that raises the legs so the casters can roll! This is one service we offer at Dwellings Refined...you find the bottom of your choice and we'll make you a top!
Our store hours have changed since we are finally moved in and somewhat settled:
Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m. 'til 5 p.m.
Sunday from 1 p.m. 'til 5 p.m.
We are closed Monday and Tuesday.
We are located between Donna's #6 Produce and Magnolia Flea Market on Hwy. 49 South...on the right just past Jerry's Fish House (which is on the left.) When you pass Donna's turn on your blinker...or you will miss us! We are the little brick building. There is a flashing sign!!

Crystal, milk glass and depression glass are the ingredients for a light, shimmery table.
I had this little old fashioned tree "planted" in an old brown crock...
I love the textures of Indian baskets.
I am a nut about bowls...all sizes and types.
Tools now hang on our barn wood wall. They look like pieces of art.
Hand-made crosses by my friend Wanda Pearson have a place of honor in our shop.
There is nothing more endearing than Blue Willow china.
This beautiful handcrafted antique door coffee table will be specially priced
My son tried his hand making a coffee table from an old painted door.
Last but certainly not least is MY grand old hutch!

Very little has been purchased. We re-purposed and re-used what was on hand. That's the whole point of the shop...to give creative outlet to use what you already have.
This is our Welcome table. Love the feather candle rings!
I recently purchased this old chest and it's looking for a new home. Notice the little jute topped felt stockings...they have the prettiest tassels attached.
I had to have just a little corner for some of my art. My bird's nests are there, too. You know the lore, don't you? If you have a nest in your Christmas tree, you new year will be filled with great things. Now who doesn't need great things?
Babyland....and our white Idea Tree is filled with ornaments you can make! I'll tell you how.
Pink and turquoise...simply sparkly and bright!
Five old doors are awaiting your decorative touch...this is my favorite. It still has the lock attached.
How would you like this beauty under your tree? (Well, at least BY the tree!)Now, I'll show you one more tonight...I've got to save something for tomorrow.
For the fisherman in your life!
More pictures tomorrow night!
We will open at 10 am this Saturday. We hope you will join us then!
