These wonderful barrels come with optional signs to designate what you are storing. But don't let our ideas limit your creativity. We have had many customers use these for their pet food storage. But in addition, you could use them for small garden tools, grilling tools or even your brickettes. Just make sure they are under a covered area as these barrels are not designed to be waterproof. Get them in the natural cedar color or select a color and we'll get you coordinated! These rustic style barrels are useful in many ways!
