Wine Barrel-Inspired Wine Storage

These Retired Wine Barrels Received a Vintage & Rustic Makeover

— February 10, 2014 — Art & Design
Wine Barrel Woodcrafts recycles retired wine barrels to create a wide range of beautiful furniture. The retired wine barrels are made of oak and have retained the colour from the wine they previously stored. Every piece of furniture is handcrafted, which results in your piece being as unique as you are.

A wide range of products are available from classic wine racks to stools, tables and candle holders. If you want to get a little more creative you can always request a custom order; the site shows examples such as chandeliers, dog beds and even a saddle rack for the cowboy/wine enthusiast out there.

So go ahead and give these old retired wine barrels some new life and add some class to any room of your house. Wine Barrel Woodcrafts is always looking for new ideas to play with so don't be shy, ask for something creative and prepare to be impressed.
