This is a black barrel sphere with wine barrel stave stand. We have reclaimed the wine barrel, broken it down, cleaned, and sanded it. Then we have coated with metal bands with black rust-oeleum which will help keep the metal from tarnishing and also give it a black color. The metal bands include 6 different bands that are mounted together in a sphere.
The wine barrel staves have been coated with an outdoor sealant and remain in their natural color. We have mounted the base of the staves together and then wrapped another band around the bottom keeping it help firmly together.
This item would look great with more than one down the entry way of your house, or down your driveway, or in your front yard, backyard, or garden. You simply dig down a couple of inches into the ground and then place the dirt back around the hoop and stand. We will include some ties to stick into the ground for additional security. You could also add some heavier dirt, rocks, and even cement to hold it in place.
-6 Black Wine Barrel Hoops -mounted together on both the top and bottom
-4 wine barrel staves mounted together with the base

Assembly: The sphere will come in one piece , the stand will come mounted together you will just need to dig the hole in the ground.
Maintenance and Care: It is treated to be outside but I do recommend storing the item indoors during harsh winter months where there is a lot of snow or rain or if it's very windy out. You can remove the sphere from the stand anytime so it's easier to store.
