wine-barrel-recycled-cabinet.pngAs the search for the perfect holiday gift continues, all of us are scrambling to find the most unique gifts for the loved ones in our lives. For the wine lover close to your heart, Uncommon Goods’ recycled wine barrel side cabinet ($900) could be the perfect addition to any media room or living room. The full-bodied cabinet is made from a retired wine barrel custom-built to house an inner storage shelf and removable maple serving tray with casters. Whether it’s destined to be the designated wine station or a side table near the couch, this cabinet is truly one of a kind. Each cabinet is crafted from previously used white oak wine barrels, which are typically discarded after several years of use at wineries. Instead of ending up in the dump, Uncommon Goods builds them into sturdy, made-to-order recycled cabinets in Georgia. Wine aficionados and reuse connoisseurs alike will marvel at the beautiful craftsmanship — both of the barrel itself and its seamlessly upcycled additions. A conversation starter and a statement piece, I could see the barrel serving as a handsome storage home for kitchenware and barware, or as a beautiful perch for hors d’oeuvres at the next get-together on the calendar. Please note: As each recycled wine barrel side cabinet is custom-made, there is typically a four-week lead time prior to delivery. Though that pushes past the holidays, any lucky recipient surely won’t mind waiting for this beautifully recycled gem.
