Wine Barrel Floors

So I saw this today and it had such character and the reuse and re purposing of these materials is so neat I had to share.   As most of us know, wine is often fermented in wooden barrels.  Typically these barrels are oak, often from french oak trees, but what I didn’t realize is that they only last about 10 years and cost around $1000 a barrel!  So this company takes the barrels which are often sold for rather cheap, straightens them out, mills then and the installs as wood flooring.

  1. This is a great idea. Now…where to find barrels cheap? Tons of bourbon barrels here in KY, just not cheap.
