Wine is fantastic. You can drink it at dinner parties, at weddings, at bars, or during a nice relaxing night at home, as a way to treat yourself after a tough day at work.
But what do you do with the wine bottles once you’ve finished enjoying the delicious drink inside? Wine Bottle Art has found a way to recycle discarded wine bottles and turn them into something amazing and beautiful.
Carol Lundquist, the creator of Wine Bottle Art, makes her amazing designs by taking discarded wine bottles, removing the labels, and firing them in a kiln at over 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit. This flattens the glass bottles down, allowing Carol to form them into different designs.
They have cheese platters, holiday ornaments, spoon rests, sun catchers and more, all made from upcycled wine bottles.
Wine Bottle Art is a great company, that takes discarded wine bottles, and creates a new and original product from them.
Wine connoisseurs looking to add unique pieces to collections throughout their home will find the perfect barrels, wall art, bars and more with the amazing company Barrel-Art!
The Hampton, Virginia, company began when owner Mike Prieto found a love for woodworking after losing his belongings in a fire. Prieto and his wife, Kambra needed furniture immediately so he learned the trade to build what the most important pieces. After visits to various European wineries, Prieto created a bar out of a wooden barrel, leading to interest in his new creation. From that point on, Prieto received so many requests for other items that he brought Barrel-Art to life.
Prieto’s traditional barrels are perfect decorative pieces for any room. They originate from France and Spain and include dates, toasting notes or origin stamps on the dark walnut, red mahogany, natural or plain finishes. These barrels can serve as end tables, nightstands or dining room decor and bring the wine country into your home!
The wine bars of Barrel-Art are even more beautiful pieces to display your wine collection. The traditional barrel bar, Barrel-Art’s first creation, features two doors that open to reveal shelves to slide in your favorite drinks. Rich finishes of natural, red mahogany or dark walnut will fit into any style decor. Open barrel bars are stained red on the inside from the red wines once held there, and the open sides allow for perfect showcasing of bottles. If you want to show off spirits in addition to wine, pick up a barrel with an additional shelf and a lazy Susan!
Looking for other ways to bring Barrel-Art’s woodwork into your home? Prieto has designed various bar stools, benches and even a fire pit from the French and Spanish barrels. Relax outside with a comfortable rocking chair, add an oak-finished coffee table with storage into your living room or turn your bathroom into a place all guests will want to view with a wine barrel sink! There is a piece of furniture for every room crafted from the variety of barrels in Prieto’s collection.

The idea for Barrel-Art came not out of a want for beautiful crafted wooden furniture; it actually came out of a desperate need.
During a move to Europe, owners Mike and Kambra Prieto lost everything they owned in a fire. They needed to get furniture immediately, but couldn’t afford to buy brand new items. That’s when they found inspiration from some of the European wineries and came up with the idea for wood crafted furniture made from wine barrels. They found the perfect barrel in a gorgeous French Oak barrel from Bordeaux, and the business took off from there.
Barrel-Art creates a variety of amazing and beautiful barrel products, including beer flights made from barrel ribs, chairs, tables, barrel bars, candle holders, champagne and wine racks, pens, and much more!
One of our favorite products from Barrel-Art is there Classic Style Wine Bar with Lazy Susan.

Have you ever heard customers complain about this dilemma: They’re at a fancy dinner party, maybe celebrating a birthday or graduation, and it comes time for the guests to toast their wine glasses to the event. But unless they’re sitting at a fairly small table, most people will have to stretch across the table to toast their glasses with the other guests. It becomes a hassle, and creates more effort than should be necessary at an otherwise relaxed event.
The idea for an invention to make toasting glasses more easily came to Wine Chime Toasting Bar creator Peter Kelley one night while he was at a dinner party with a dozen or so people. He saw the other guests, including himself, stretch across the table to toast a friend’s glass that was too far away to reach comfortably. He thought, “what if there was an easier way to make a toast, without all the uncomfortable stretching?”
So, just for fun, he began making a few of his Wine Chimes in his basement at home, and began selling them to interested friends and neighbors. Pretty soon, he was making hundreds of Wine Chimes in a variety of styles and sizes, and selling them to a larger market.
The Wine Chime is a unique invention that takes a long silver tonal bar, and suspends it using a variety of beautiful bases. The Wine Chime works by clinking a wine glass against the tonal bar, rather than glass to glass contact. This creates a nice metallic note, while making it easier to toast to celebratory events.
The Wine Chime is available in two main styles: for straight tables and for round tables. This makes them perfect for any style of dinner table.
There are also a fantastic variety of bases available to give your Wine Chime a look that fits with any style of home decor. There are beautiful, rounded glass bases that are hand blown by skilled artists, and also granite bases for those looking to accent a more modern style of home. Marble is also a big seller from Wine Chime, and each of these materials comes in a variety of shapes, including round, apple, trapezoid, and cup shaped.
Not only do they function as great pieces to help with dinner party toasting, they also look beautiful as a centerpiece for a table. The Wine Chime’s base can be filled with flowers and foliage, and even have places to put candlesticks for effective mood lighting during a romantic evening for two.
If your customers enjoy dinner parties with friends, or just want to have a romantic and handsome centerpiece for their table, check out the Wine Chime Toasting Bar!
