      I like the idea you have as a table base. If it for s large table , use a small acrylic piece for a coffee or side table

    How about a protection cover over a small outdoor fire pit. Use cover to keep anything out ONCE THE FIRE HAS GONE OUT!

    I'm a shabby chic kinda of gal mixed in with a boho flow and pop of color. I saw this and one, I want one! Two, what's your vision for it? I instantly saw it hanging from the center of a gazebo, draped in white hanging lights. And decorated with strips of tulle and pretty strands of beads and crystals. There's so MANY ideas that instantly came to my mind. I think it's big enough to hang on its creating a shabby chic sitting area by tying large pieces of tulle or the netting ( crinoline is cheaper and more durable and comes in lots of colors) cascading down and making your own "gazebo" of sorts. Send it to me, I'll fix her up, then send it back! Lol Tell me where /how you're really wanting to use this and I'll spew more ideas to you! Where on earth did you find such a fabulous item? The kid is pretty cute too :)

      Use strings of LED christmas type lights. Use a chain to hang it, it doesn't look light weight. Have the light strings radiate out from the center, wrapping them around the wicker.

    Hanging light, either like Jess and Michelle said or more rustic with an Edison bulb..... either way, it's beautiful!

    I agree with Jess Gregg make it the center or your gazebo with sheer fabric and white lights strung though and around it. You could secure the fabric to the corner post and then make curtains from post to post that can either stay open or closed depending on what you'd like. Please post pictures when you decide what you want to do.

    Turn it upside down and use as a basket for throws and pillows? Whatever it is, I feel like I need it in my life... haha

    How sturdy is the basket thing? If sturdy enough hang it,sideways with a little tilt to the back, add cushions and pillows and now you have a cozy swing.

    I have an old wooden birdcage that I use in my bedroom with a night light. It's not quite that big but the shadows on the wall and ceiling is beautiful.

    reinforce it with some plywood between each brace and add some batting under the top portion, put a piece of wood on the bottom and create a footstool.
