Oil barrels squeezed out of oil, recycled into shelf-cabinets
Oil barrels that are done carrying those toxic fuels and are looking for a healthy retirement can now have a new lease to life, recycled and converted into little cabinets. German design group Lockengeleot hailing from St. Pauli, Hamburg picked up these barrels that sprang a leak, ripped them open from one side, installed shelves and added on the finishing touches with color, turning these once-oil-carriers into beautiful shelf-cabinets that you could use to store your cutlery, books and knick-knacks.
The pricing on this one though is a bit steep, costing $500 a pop. A great way to repurpose old oil barrels, Lockengeleot has provided an inspiration we could pick ideas from!
