To me, wine is such a wonderful thing in the world. I love everything about wine, even those old wine barrels. If you get an wine barrel, there are a lot of things you can do with it.
I found this nice collection of 25 Creative Ways To Re-purpose Old Wine Barrels. It is very nice. You will learn some brilliant ideas to turn an old wine barrel to a chair, pet bed, water fountain, train planter, mirror, coffee table, … to name just a few. They are definitely an eye opener.
