What I did with it!

I see other bloggers post about "what I wore" so I thought I would do a post called "what I did with it" on my finds from the weekend. While I do buy to resell I also buy for myself. I love finding unique pieces to use in my home. I found the most wonderful old RC Cola rack at a junk store that was going out of business for $20. It is a bit rusty but I immediately fell in love with it and for $20 it was a no brainer. I already had an idea of what I wanted to do with it. So here it is in it's new life as a Bar Cart:

I am loving it!!!!

A couple of other things that I am keeping from this weekend are two pieces of pottery that a man at a sale gave me. He said that he had dug them up from an old mill site here in Augusta. They are covered in red Georgia clay but they are absolutely beautiful! They are quite lovely as a center piece for my breakfast room table.

 So there you go, that's what I did with my junk that I found this weekend!
I couldn't be happier with my new treasures!

Sharing With:


  1. What an awesome find, I would have grabbed it in an instant. Love the transformation...very clever. I'd probably hang on to the pottery also. You really were in the right place at the right time. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  2. The bar looks utterly ravishing!

  3. Love your idea for your "What I Did With It" post. More, please. The patinas of rust and clay are what I like best about these great finds, and I just wish I had your imagination to repurpose the cola rack into a bar. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Wow...I LOVE the RC Cola cart - and for $20...even better. In my opinion, the more rust, the better, and I think yours has just the perfect amount. Your picture looks like something you'd see in a catalog for hundreds of dollars. We saw an RC Cola thermometer at the barn sale, and he was asking $100 for it. (Mind you I paid less than that for EVERYTHING I bought). Thanks for stopping by - and for sharing your great treasures!

  5. Love these type of posts - that rack-turned-bar cart is fantastic! You're making me itch to get out and find some stuff to makeover.

  6. I'm lovingthat industrial piece turned into a bar cart....very cool!! Also have a weakness for white crazed pottery:-)


  7. This bar cart is amazing! I recently found an old soda rack (haven't shared it yet!) that I'm debating what to do with.

    Of course, cocktails and vintage finds are two of my favorite things - so this is a contender for my find!

    Glad to be a new follower.

  8. Thanks so much for sharing your creation with Share Your Cup Thursday!

  9. I love those glasses. I've never seen ones like that but they would be perfect for my kitchen. Great finds and great designs.

  10. Whew it's been a busy week and I am late at getting around to all my link up friends. I absolutely love what you did with it. It is very cool, great job! I was picturing it as a plant stand the first time I saw it but even more lovely indoors! Thanks for joining us at Cap Creations the next link up is now live.

  11. I love this much more than what I wore posts on other blogs. Great idea1 I hope you do more of these.
