As a child, did you ever wonder what happened to a balloon when you let it fly into the sky? Did it wander into outer space? Or did curious birds pop it before it got very far? Well here's one answer to tell the little rugrats in your life when they ask that very question - it becomes furniture!At least these balloons do. Five hundred deflated balloons in a variety of colors cover this cool table and make it a delightful addition to any bedroom. The Balloona side table isn't cheap, but with good reason ... each balloon is tied together over wood to create this fun piece of furniture. We love looking at it and remembering the joy we felt in our younger years. Balloons can brighten any day and with this table, they certainly brighten ours!

Most everybody likes a good bottle of wine, but there are certain people out there who live and breathe wine. These are the people that not only have a small collection of reds and whites at their disposal near the dinner table, but probably also have a cellar of some sort that houses the best bottles. Besides multiple bottles of the good stuff, their house probably also has framed pictures of wine and wine accessories around the kitchen, a monthly subscription to Wine 4 Life, and multiple coffee (wine?) table books on the subject scattered about. Maybe it's your father or father-in-law, a dear friend, or your loving husband who's the wine aficionado and you'd like to get them something they'll really like that pertains to their hobby. One problem. You have no idea about anything to do with wine except that it's good with dinner. What year Chateau Ste. Michelle was supposed to be good? Is the 2007 Merlot better than the Cabernet? Forget all the worrying and get them something that will make their wine collection and cellar even better, without you having to research the history of the grape. This 30-gallon oak wine barrel not only decorates and adds authentic appeal to any room, but it can double as a table top or be used as a table base. Versatile and perfect for the wine-lover in your life!Price: $329.00, but many wineries have (empty) barrels for sale that go for under $100, and if you're not a fan of the unfinished look, you're a DIY project away from a new table!Who Found It: idabone was first to add the Decorative 30-Gallon Oak Wine Barrel to the Hive.
