I did these quite a while ago but never posted them. I dug them out this morning and thought that I'd share them because I'm totally proud of them.

They are hand painted on the reclaimed lids of wine barrels. My hubby chopped them in half, sanded them down and then I went to town Smiley The lids are made of oak so they are pretty hefty, weighing about 4 pounds each!







You can see that the backs of them are still stained from the wine when they were in the barrels Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Those are really fantastic!  I love everything about them, actually!  Are you going to display them together?  Give them as gifts?

I love these! I've been wanting to make a handmade spirit board for ages, but just haven't found the right wood yet! What a great way to repurpose!
