Introduction: Industrial Bottle Display Shelf

A few years ago, we took a trip to Dundurn Castle on a beautiful summer day and I snapped a shot of a car that was being used for a wedding taking place on the grounds. On a whim, I posted the photo to the Jones Soda site on the off chance they would use it for one of the labels on their pop bottles.

I soon forgot about it and about 8 months later, I got a letter in the mail congratulating me on being chosen for one of their production runs and a few copies of the actual label with my photograph of the car on it!

Step 3: Admire Your Hard Work!

We set the bottles onto the shelf. It was only then that we realized that the car on the lable was a mirror image of the picture I took - how cool is that!

Step 4: Final Touches

My husband likes to restore vintage heaters and has a collection of them. Our last bit of staging was to add one of them in the corner underneath the shelf. Given the black and yellow colour, it was like it was all meant to be together! He gave the heater a bit more height by placing a wine box underneath it (a good call on his part).

Practically, there may not be many of you that would display a pop bottle (unless there are some Jones soda pictures that strike your fancy and you want to display them like I did). However, this idea would also work great to display special wine bottles combined with a picture - or grouping of pictures - of where they were shared!
