As we have mentioned a barrel in some of our previous upcycling articles, a barrel, cask or tun is a hollow cylindrical container, traditionally made of wooden stoves bound by wooden or metal hoops. Traditionally the barrel was a standard size of measure referring to a set capacity or weight of a given commodity. Here when we talk of barrel, we assume huge wooden drum that contains some liquid and stores it. This is so beautifully shaped and durably constructed that it could be turned into many art crafts. Its metallic hoops give it industrial look and its wooden structure gives it a rustic look.
The idea on the count is to turn this wood barrel into a table cum chest. This is a dual purposed furniture item where you use it like a coffee or common table, and as a safe chest to store and save your different accessories. This is going to be such a great addition to your space or drawing that you are literally going to love it. Its rustic dingy look is going to fascinate you a lot. This table cum chest, is going to serve you in a best manner. It would not only contain your accessories as a common table, but also as a chest would keep your valuables safe and secured.
All you need in making this table cum chest is a wooden barrel and a straight wooden shutter. You would cut barrel in half and install a wooden shutter on it as a cover making it a table cum shutter. This recycled wood barrel table cum shutter is pretty supportive in your drawing room as it is going to serve many purposes at the same time. While it is also cost friendly, and it would certainly offer the looks which you can’t buy even in branded expensive furniture items.
