BEFORE & AFTER: THE BUCKET LIST

Image

Add this to the bucket list or what can be done with a bucket! Inspirations can bloom in the most unusual of places.  Shemins Nursey in Greenwich, CT sells reclaimed half-round wine barrels for potting on their expansive 1081 King Street location. They are stacked outside for about $35.00 each. What you see is literally what you get. Weathered and soiled, this is a lauching point that needs careful clean up TLC.

I exhaustively cleaned then brought the barrels into the workroom at Tiger Lily’s Greenwich and had our artisans apply an inside webbed seat. We added 2″ foam and upholstered with a antique Kilm which fastened to the base of the barrel. Decorative nail-heads in pewter conceal the staples and work perfectly with the existing pewter bands on the base.

The result is a wonderful rustic style seat that can be used as ottomans. The pair adds a bold pop to a moutain style, a ski-happy or texas-hold-em decor by infusing a custom touch.
