One of the local vineyards in our area were selling their wine barrels, and at a pretty good price too. So after work last week we headed up the coast to collect one

This is our barrel just after we bought it home 

after a splash of stain

And here it is all ready to be used as an outdoor table

I love how the grain showed through once stained

I made some quiches yesterday and used some of my bottled tomatoes (from previous post)...they were so tasty!!

I have been doing lots of gardening this weekend...even the chook yard has had a clean up. We have 3 chooks and will be getting some more (Isa Brown) on Friday. I am sure they will be all given names to by miss 10!lol!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
