    i have wanted the “barrel furniture” ever since i saw it in a j c penney store when i was 11 yrs. old. we couln’t get it because my mother said it would be a “sin” to have that in our house,because whiskey had been in the barrels you know. and as you can guess i grew up in a house not a home. anyway if there happens to be someone out there who has a set such as this plz make contact.

        Mary – no buying/selling on the main blog. You may list this on our Forum, though. Good luck. (Forum is at top of page, right.)

      If you’re still looking for this barrel furniture, we have a room full, including a bar and two bar stools that we need to sell from an estate. Let me know if you’re interested.

        Folks, please keep buying/selling off the blog or else it becomes chaos. If you list it on craigslist or ebay… folks will find it.

    Earl, I happen to have a round table and 4 chairs. I don’t remember seeing them anywhere, but I was immediately drawn to them. The chairs are very comfortable.

    I think this is the same set I sat in at the Scott Antique Show here in Columbus last month. Its really a lot kooler in person but its definitely a gaming table – the chairs aren’t exactly what you’d sit in to watch a movie! Lol Being barrels, they ARE perfectly straight up and down!

    A friend gave me the couch 2 swivel chairs and another chair and ottoman, they are cool as hell, but very uncomfortable, will be posting mine on craigslist soon

    I have a few pieces (2 chairs, small table & 2 lamps) of the barrel furniture and found this website while searching for information about it. Does anyone know if the chairs where made from real whiskey barrels? I’m curious to haw they came to be, did a furniture maker get a deal on barrels? Or where they made from scratch? Either way I like ’em.

    While searching for information on the barrel furniture I found a barrel coffee table on the local craig’s list for $35 but I just don’t have the space for it, here’s the link if anyone is interested: http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/fuo/3038375649.html

    Love the pic, we just bought a home in Aug and they had left the same furniture!! They also left the bar and bar stools that go with the furniture 🙂

    We have a wonderful set for sale in Knoxville Tennessee. You can find the ad on Knoxville Craigslist. This really is the coolest furniture and becoming harder and harder to find in decent condition.
