    I got my mom one of these a few years ago and I have always been a bit jealous of how great it looks in her yard. I finally rewarded myself and got some garden globes. They are so well made and really give a whimsical feel to my yard. I would highly recommend these garden globes- truly unique.

    Absolutely love my two new wine barrel garden globes. They look fabulous with the one I received from my daughter earlier. Well packaged and arrived earlier than stated. Wonderful experience. I had them out in my yard the afternoon they arrived. =) Thank you for creating these wine barrel garden globes.
    Best wishes.

    The wood isn't finished as smooth as I had expected. Clothes will snag on the wood. Stools are sturdy and level, the finishing is inferior.

    The edges of the metal band around the top are very sharp and rough. Not great for anyone actually sitting at the table. One of the screw heads holding the rim in place broke off, and the metal band popped up. Tried to fix this after finding the exact type of screw to match the others. Found one close, not exact. I contacted the seller immediately, got a message that the 'shop was temporarily closed' and no further communication. Overall, disappointed. Service and communication was very good until the item arrived.

    This order was shipped November 26 of last year. In December I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon cancer and forced to close my shop, which I did in February, three months after this client received their order. I did not hear from the customer before then, and the communication was lost in cyberspace once the shop was closed. I do allow returns, but this client did not respond until months later. I've reopened my shop in May 2019 to sell remaining inventory, as drastic price reductions. If you order an item and are unhappy with your purchase I still accept returns!

About

Makers of affordable wine barrel funishings, art and accessories

I stumbled upon recycled barrels as a source of material to make useful and valuable home furniture, thus 'upcycling' a waste product. Barrel staves are curved just right to make comfortable garden furniture and other home accessories. Made of fine french oak, these items are rugged, heavy and long lasting treasures for your home.

I am a sole proprietor, meaning I make and ship every item you see on my Etsy shop. I can do special orders, so if you see an item you like on Pinterest or other sites, just forward a copy with a conversation, or email me at mengle98 [!at] gmail.com and I will provide an estimate on price, production time, and shipping date.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Recycled wine barrel furniture is rustic and the surfaces are scarred and have "character" marks from use in the winery. Barrels are toasted when they are made, which leaves darker inside; mostly we use red wine barrels, which the inside of the stave darker than the outside, which holds the color stain you choose for your piece.

Wine barrel wood doesn't do well outside if left uncovered during weather. Rain is especially hard on your outside furniture. With wine barrels they can leech tannin, which is left from the wine in the wood. Left uncovered, you can plan on refinishing your piece annually. A cover is an easy solution; take off during fair weather, and put back on during rain or inclement weather.

Stain Choices

We have done hundreds of wine barrel furniture and furnishings, and the most popular choices are shown in the listing as a variation on the listing, meaning you choose the color stain when checking out.

We use high quality Varathane stains and polyurethane varnish. With outside pieces we spray three coats of polyurethane varnish on top of the stain.

Our final pieces are not weatherproof, and we always recommend a cover or bringing inside during inclement weather. If you leave your wine barrel furniture outside during weather you can count on refinishing annually to keep your piece looking good.

Custom and personalized orders

Most of what I make is to your specifications, which means I don't maintain an inventory of finished goods, but produce your order to your specifications. If you wish to have a color stain not included in a listing just send a conversation via Etsy letting me know your choice.

I will send an email or conversation on Etsy letting your know production timing and when your piece should ship. If you want pictures of the finished product prior to shipping please specify in a separate conversation.

Shipping

Shipping costs are high for wood barrel furnishings due to the heavy weight and larger sizes. We now offer free shipping on all items, thus it's important that you understand what you are buying. I encourage dialog prior to purchasing, and can often send more pictures and describe what goes into the finished product better.

Returns are allowable, if returned within 30 days, but return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.

If an item is damaged in shipping please notify the shipping company and reject the item. They will return it to me, and I can refund your purchase price or make you a new item.
