Some Fun Finds at Dwellings

A sneak peek at some of the finds from last week. Two new truck loads arriving Wednesday morning. Get there early for best selection!

Vintage swivel stools with burlap railroad bag seats.

I once knew a lady whose last name was Campbell. She had the neatest Campbell's Kids soup ads framed and hung in her eating area.

These collectible mugs are in perfect condition and would look cute in someone's kitchen!

Only $4 each.
In a totally different direction...for all you guitar aficionados out there...

A local artist's acrylic renditions of Jimi Hendrix.

Ya'll, he's good!

The hutch pictured below is easily separated into two pieces.

It's in very good condition and is made extremely well.

Heavy and solid...good to repaint, too!

But it doesn't need paint to look good.

This is a small set of drawers (below) that is begging for a new home!

I can see her on the back porch...painted white!

Just wanted you to see a few fun finds from Dwellings..Refined. Don't forget that we have two new truck loads of goodies that will be here on Wednesday at 10:00.

Hope you will shop with us soon!
PS: Civil War enthusiasts...I may have a CW bullet maker. This won't last long!

Blackeye Beans Tops

Before I begin...let me say...I know basically how to upholster a stool top...HOWEVER, my fabric of choice was in very limited supply and I had to do the best I could with what I had..

that's what my shop and my blog are all about!

Old pitiful tops to very heavy old swivel stools (pictured above.)

"Fabric" of choice...two old railroad bean bags!

I LOVED them and knew they'd look great on the stools.

I know they are a little "puffy" around the edges...

But you do what you gotta do.

Someone said they look like old Coke bottle tops!

Yep, they surely do! I added some black twisted welting...cute!

Will post pics in the shop today!
Book bundles (below) are flying off the shelf! Literally! Had to restock twice yesterday!

Let me do your legwork...4 pretty vintage books for $5! You really need these for your decorating projects! (Hint: they are so much nicer than those old paperbacks or NEW books!)

Come visit us soon!
