So excited that we'll have outdoor living space at our new place! Will be fun to explore Pinterest for design ideas since we're obviously on a tight budget. I like the look of this "table." A halved wine/whiskey barrel simply turned upside down. -tkz
Another very unusual and creative way of using an old barrel is to basically cut out just a portion of it and turn it into a frame for a round wall mirror. It can have an irregular look or organic shape. The important detail is for one side to have straight lines for the mirror to fit in.
