Old barrels have inspired some pretty amazing DIY projects, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you all. It’s no secret that I love upcycling and repurposing everyday materials in my DIY home decor, furniture projects, and crafts. And I don’t think it’s any secret that I am an avid wino as well, making these recycled wine barrel projects doubly special. You can make these old barrel projects to give as DIY gifts to the wine fanatics in your life or fill your own space with this this rustic home decor.
I especially love all of the beautiful bars built from these upcycled barrels. There’s something a little poetic about making a drinking storage and display station from the vessels that were used to make the spirits originally. And seeing as my dog jumps at the chance to chase the reflections from our wine glasses, it seems fitting that he has a bed made from a wine barrel as well. Not to mention a wine barrel dog bed is way cuter than his lumpy foam bed currently sitting in the corner. I see a weekend project in my very near future!
Find the perfect project for your own home using old wine or whiskey barrels whether you’re looking for a DIY pet project, DIY furniture pieces, or homemade rustic home decor. There’s something for everyone on this list to love, even if wine or whiskey isn’t your thing.
