The wood barrels have a limited life span of five years with the winemaker, but it's lifespan can be extended by recycling the wine barrels into furniture. After a barrel has been used by the wine maker, the wood has absorbed the natural colors of the wine and has taken on a beautiful aged appearance. The most stunning and distinctive furniture can be created out of the wood from these wine barrels.
Antique furniture is always a priced possession for many. It reminds us of our grandparents and parents who used it at some point of time, making them historically important assets of the family; the China cabinet of granny, the rocking chair of Uncle Harry and the barrel chair on which you and your siblings spent hours playing in childhood. All are the enchantments of the golden times; the times when the things didn't move so fast, and life was less complicated. With the passing time, this furniture has seen generations using it and maybe, sometimes shifted from one place to another. To make them fit in well with your modern day furniture can be a little tricky, but is an achievable task. The barrel chair slipcover is always one of the recommended options for restoring the antique furniture.
This chair also comes with a motorized leg rest. The leg rest can be extended with the push of a button on the remote control. Likewise, you can also retract the leg rest by using the remote control.
I know of upholstery classes where you can take your project along with you and work on it once a week over a number of months. I'm afraid I would not be patient enough to do that. So consider buying a ready made barrel chair slipcover from a department store. If you do buy one online, check to see that you can return it for a refund or at least an exchange, and there are no penalties for doing so, like a restocking charge.
