    You could use it as a flower caddy and insert different glass jars or small vases. Then put a small nosegay arrangement in each vessel. Or, use it as a countertop caddy in the bathroom to hold vintage glasses filled with cotton balls, swabs, make-up brushes, etc.

    MN MOM! My first look at this WAS a flower caddy. I like the idea for a bathroom caddy!

    You could leave as is or paint it, hang it on the end of your counter to hang towels, or use some canning jars, you could hang it under your cabinets and use it store your utensils. But what I would probably do is build or find an old shallow wood box, attach it to the top so it becomes a handle and put 3 old milk bottles in it with either tiny light or use for fresh cut flowers. So many uses!! You could even hang it on the wall next to your front door to hold umbrella's, scarves, keys etc...

    It would be really pretty as a flower caddy or with colorful bottles. I have something similar that I spray painted a bright color and placed in a new portable garden with a potted plant and it looks amazing.

    If you have a crafting area paint it put old jars such as mason jars and use it to hold brushes, pencils, watercolor pencils, markers to keep them handy.

    I would hang it by a kitchen window to plant a small terra cotta herb garden. I would attach a small clear plastic tray to the bottom as a saucer.

    Use Mason jars to fill caddy. Fill the jars with solar fairy lights and create an outdoor chandelier.

    Got one almost like it in a box from my aunt. Spray painted it with Rustoleum silver (I always use satin finish) then the local dollar store had small glass old fashioned milk bottles. Bought them and found small stemmed silk flowers at Joanns and put them in each bottle. Makes a cute table centerpiece. Crafty nana

    How about unique coloured and shaped glassware. Or it seems so versatile that you can change it up with different ideas for a table centrepiece. Perhaps different types of candles..
