    As for uses...well fruit,potatoes and onions,a couple of rolled up lap blankets in the family room,do you knit...balls of yarn,mittens at the front door in the winter,toilet paper,Guest Towels a nice refinishing idea...there are so many cool french country idea's. You could paint it out white bottom, black top and a cool french transfer on the outer sides maybe even the inside.....

    You could try stacking some cute throws/blankets in it, which would be especially cozy looking for fall and winter. Or like you said, set it outdoors and use it as a planter.

    I think Jill Cannon has a great idea. You could paint the base if you wanted to. But I like to paint nearly everything.

    Continuing along the lines of Jill's comment. .. paint it a fun color and use it as a magazine or towel/soap/shampoo, etc. holder in a guest bathroom or bedroom. Or, fill it with fresh pine branches and pine cones, etc. for a fragrant Christmas decoration.

    I have one of these,,but it would seem too heavy for most things. I like the painting different colors for top and underneath..still holding on to mine. Its a brass color, and I have set it on or near the hearth with lots of glittered cones in the fall-winter..but my two cats just have the cones all over everything! :) Stepping on a cone at night is not fun. Tried styro Christmas balls and they had a 'ball' with that idea!

  • I love mine!! I spray painted it black and it's full of wood next to my fireplace. Love it.

    paint it and lay your magazines in it next to your chair or extra throws or a little dog bed. There are lots of uses still. roll towels and leave it near your tub,

    make a drainhole and plant REAL flowers and plants in it

    I would make an arrangement of dried flowers in it and place in in front of the fire place. You could change the arrangement with the season change and it would be lovely for Xmas you could fill it with pine cones and tinsel or birch tree branches and spray it with artificial snow and maybe put in a couple of handmade snowmen or gingerbread men or even candy canes. Oh the possibilities are endless good luck

    would make a great planter for an ivy plant. Train the vines around the handle...

    You could roll up a bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth and put it in a guest room or bathroom.Tie a pretty ribbon on the handle and let it stream down.
