Last night, I found out about Three Potato Four from a local news website. Within minutes, I knew that I had to visit this place immediately. So today, I googled mapped my way to Manayunk, a Philadelphia neighborhood, and already had a purchase in mind thanks to the store's fabulous website.
For several months, I have been searching for the perfect old piece of furniture to serve as a bar cart in our dining room. I wanted something beat up and unconventional, and something that would be versatile enough for me to use in a variety of ways in the future. Sure enough, I found this old green industrial cart that had been renewed with some reclaimed wood. Fortunately for me, the piece was still at the store this morning and I knew it was perfect once I saw it in person! Yes it's a little..um... industrial... for a dining room, but I'm thinking of repainting it. I just have no idea what color I want it to be, so it'll probably sit here like this for a while:
I think that it's perfect for a bar cart now, but I can also imagine using it as a storage cart in my kitchen, or a garden cart for the porch!
My other fun finds include this old Kraft American cheese box, a sugar mold (which has now become a perfect addition to my desk), a book of Gospel songs from 1902, and 3 skeleton keys. Overall, a fun day at Three Potato Four, please give them a visit if you live in the Philly area!
