Guest Book Instructions


Congratulations on your nuptials!

Your unique Bourbon Barrel Rehab Bourbon Barrel Head Guest Book needs a little special attention.  It is best for your guests to use extra fine point permanent markers (i.e. Sharpie) to write on the surface of the barrel head to avoid bleeding and smearing.  Once you have all your signatures and salutations use four or five coats of a SPRAY polyurethane to coat and protect the surface.  DO NOT brush on a sealant as the marker will smear!  Please be aware that your barrel head has recently been in contact with bourbon and will still be drying out.  Your Guest Book has been reinforced but over time may still shrink and you may see the gaps between the wood expand a bit.  This is all normal, so don’t worry if there is some separation.  The back of the barrel head has been felted so it won’t scratch your walls if you decide to hang your barrel head (we have included a hanger and screws for you.)  Be careful when hanging the barrel head because it is fairly heavy. 


May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.
May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase. 
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the
happiest day of your past.
