incorporate the barrels into your furniture’s design. For example, take a look at this kitchen island. The barrels are part of the supporting base but they are incorporated in the design and the base has a wood construction with a texture and finish very similar to that used for the barrels.
Pallet bar my husband made for our seasonal campsite. Approx $80 only!! 6 pallets, (10) 12x12 patio pavers, 2 tubes liquid nails (use w/ a gun), wood screws & one 1x10 piece of wood. He screwed pallets together using a level, screwed the 1x10 onto the top of pallets, used liquid nails to set the pavers, painted the bar, strung lights & attached a bottle opener!!
