I know of upholstery classes where you can take your project along with you and work on it once a week over a number of months. I'm afraid I would not be patient enough to do that. So consider buying a ready made barrel chair slipcover from a department store. If you do buy one online, check to see that you can return it for a refund or at least an exchange, and there are no penalties for doing so, like a restocking charge.
It is a shame to pass up a barrel chair if you see one for sale though, the ones made in the 1930s and 1940s are sturdily built and have springs that make them so very comfortable, but at 70 or 80 years old they do need to be recovered. The solution is a barrel chair slip cover. You can actually purchase these online now, either made to your specifications or ready made.
The wood barrels have a limited life span of five years with the winemaker, but it's lifespan can be extended by recycling the wine barrels into furniture. After a barrel has been used by the wine maker, the wood has absorbed the natural colors of the wine and has taken on a beautiful aged appearance. The most stunning and distinctive furniture can be created out of the wood from these wine barrels.
Wine Aging and Wine Tasting go hand in hand. Imagine a tasting table or a large barrel chair enhancing your deck or patio. Consider the multiple uses of a barrel head, with or without the steel hoop or band. They can transform into beautiful serving trays, lazy susans, face clocks or personalized signs!
