Vintage Wooden Barrel Furniture – Six Brilliant Ideas
Since we are almost halfway through the wooden barrel season, let’s see, in very suggestive images, what we can do with this container when life drains out of it just like the wine it has so long stored. And since we are talking about wood, it is well-known the material can easily turn into new items and home accessories, ready to serve our new needs. Below are several fine examples of vintage wooden barrel furniture which will bring an original touch to your homes along a good dose of high spirits which the old barrel once epitomized.
A first option is turning the old barrels into truly original seats, fit for outdoor spaces. The new furniture items bring extra rustic savor to any décor where they will be placed.
Even simpler, take a wooden barrel and cut in half, with each of the two halves making fine side tables next to a sofa. The new ensemble can go anywhere, both a patio and a living room. Just complete the landscape with flower pots, vintage lanterns or a coffee table made of reclaimed wood as well.
Just like fine aged wine, these vintage oak barrel stools will stand the test of time. Thick staves from actual oak wine casks form the legs, reinforced with hand-forged wrought iron braces. They sell for 189 USD on the Internet.
In the next image, we get the whole package which will make a useful presence in a peaceful corner of your home where to catch up with old friends. After all, this what a wooden barrel was made for!
And since we’ve already mentioned barrel halves, let’s see what the other half, cut vertically, is up to. A beautiful vintage flavor radiating table which is an original presence people will envy you for.
Finally, a bolder project. A retired oak wine barrel is transformed into a rustic and inviting bistro table. A pine tabletop is set at café height for relaxed dining or drinking.
