Rescued & Recycled
It was a pre-spring like weekend so I took full advantage of the warm weather and got a couple of DIY projects crossed off my to do list! A couple of weeks ago, I spotted a old whiskey barrel in a burn pile, so I asked the owner if I could have it, I could but when I tried to load it, the whole thing fell apart like a blooming onion! But, I picked up all the pieces and a light bulb went off brightly! The bottom was in great shape considering it had been a planter but I was visioning a new cutting board! My handy man sanded it down to new grain for me, and after a few applications of mineral oil, it came to life! A new life as a bread board! I love the end result and I'm on the hunt to find more! As for the rest of the barrel, those parts are tucked away for other uses, nothing goes to waste!
