What can you do with wine barrels? What can’t you do, we say!
What is it about wine barrels that make them such lovely statement piece at parties? Is it the mix of a rustic form and function? Is it the essence of the delicious vintages that have developed inside them? Is it the barrel’s size, which seems to be perfect for cocktail tables and buffets?
“Wine barrels — especially if they’re authentic ones that actually held wine — are great since they already have hints of age and stains,” said Rachel DeSchepper, senior web editor for Country Living Magazine. “Their wood-and-metal combo is super trendy in design right now — you see it on coffee tables and shelving everywhere from Restoration Hardware to Crate and Barrel. At parties, they’re great surfaces for drinks and appetizers. Or, you could group a bunch together with a board on top to create a buffet table.”
Wine barrels can be used for permanent furniture or as party pieces. Here are a few ideas to get you inspired.
