Have you ever wondered what happens to old barrels you may see at weddings or other events?

Well, Motor City Barrels can fill you in.

The barrels are crafted into all types of things, including tables, home decor, chairs, barware and even pet products.

The barrel bar we custom made was for a 4 car garage conversion to this amazing man cave! 5 bar stools really topped it off!
