I know that the first question that comes to your mind when looking at these old wine barrels is – “Where can I get some of them?” , well, there are several options:

1. Amazing decorative table
An awesome way to repurpose a wine barrel! This old wine barrel coffee table is pure creativity! You can see here that the wine barrel, the base and the top are the same color. It’s not just different pieces combined, it’s a complete project. Looks sturdy and stable enough to put even heavier things on top of it.
You can also make the inside open from one side to use it as a cabinet and put some books inside or thing that are better not over the table.
What we see as the hardest part here is to cut the barrel precisely in half. Another problem should be leveling so it could turn into a hard do-it-yourself project. Better to hire someone to do it for you. If you are handy enough you can do it yourself and be very proud of your project.
2. Reclaimed wine barrel top mirror
This great reclaimed wine barrel mirror is another example that you can use old wine barrels in so many different projects. You can buy this one here or find a wine barrel, cut it near the top, keeping the iron belt and glue a round mirror on the inner side. Then you should make a hook on the back to mount it to the wall.
Not very complicated to do, especially if you already have the wine barrel and considering the price. I think you can do one in a day.
