Can these be used outdoors? Will they rust with dew or rain?
My great room has dark wood floors and stone, so I didn't want to add additional wood furniture. These coordinate perfectly with my metal cabinet and industrial floor lamp from Restoration Hardware. I use the larger barrel as a faux tree planter and the smaller as a side table with cork coasters. The dual uses provide a unifying theme without duplicating uses....

Great barrels. Can't decide where I am going to use them since they work well in a number of spots.Read More
These tables are great! Add fabulous color and interest to your room.Read More
These are such beautiful barrels. They are more lovely than pictured, although I was surprised that they are open on one end... which made them more appealing to me. They can be used upside down as tables, or reversed as beautiful storage barrels. They can also be used as seating. Great product.Read More
They arrived quickly and very well packaged! Both pieces look even better than the picture and coordinate well with all the various pieces of copper and brass we've collected over the years. They have a terrific "aged" quality to them which will work with many styles if decor.Read More
Really a unique set. Old world rustic look. Great craftsmanship. Only thing that bothers me a little bit is the top of the big barrel is not flat so it is difficult to put a beverage glass on. I will have a round piece of glass cut for it to solve the problem.Read More
These tables are very unique. They are also lightweight so they can be easily moved around while they are still very sturdy. The color was as shown on the web. They have become quite the conversation pieces of my family!Read More
These barrels look great. They are lightweight, yet sturdy and look just as I had hoped they would. Just be careful not to get them wet. I have noticed a little bit of rust, nothing serious, from spilled drinks.Read More
O.K. but I was expececting the rich colors shown. Not the case. Good foot stools. Worth half the price. Site made them sound like they were hand made, for which I would have paid the price. This I could have gone to ****** for.Read More
In person the small barrell is smaller than expected but works just fine as end table. The measurement provided is correct. These are very cute tables for our beach themed living room!! Love them!Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello Debmaddis, These barrels are made of steel and then colored to appear copper. They will rust if exposed to the elements for a long enough time. We would not recommend they be used outside. Thanks for shopping with us!
What is the weight of each barrel, and are they hollow on the bottom?
They are very lightweight but still sturdy and they are hollow on the bottom.
Hi, In an answer to a previous question about these and their expected patina, you mention how copper has a tendency to turn green with age. According to the listing details, these are not made of copper, they are made of copper COLORED steel, is this correct? If so, green would not be an expected patina - or are they copper PLATED steel? If you could please let me know I would appreciate it ~ thanks!
These knobs are not copper plated. They are made of iron and they are stained to a copper-like color. They will not patina like copper. Please let me know if you have any further question.
What is the care recommendations for these tables? Will they patena?
Hello kids60, We have received new information regarding your inquiry. The tables are stainless steel treated to appear copper in appearance. They will not patina. We apologize for the confusion. Thanks for shopping with us!
if used as a stool how much weight can it hold?
These barrels are handmade by Indian artisans, so they are not factory tested for weight capacity. We do not recommend using these as stools.
