So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah, Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.
Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer. This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.
You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.
A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.
This can be yours for the same price as a case of vintage vino-$250 plus shipping.
