You can sew a liner for it - and use it for magazines etc..
Thanks Lisa! That sounds like a great idea!
Small toy box, hold fire wood (if you have a fireplace), hold balls, paint every other rib (for lack of a better term) a different color, paint every other rib red and green and use it for Christmas.
Thanks Zard! I like your idea of painting the "ribs" different colors! It would give it a funky / retro look! And maybe I'll put a liner in it as well! Thanks again for your helpful feedback!
Use in bath room for towel storage,kids room for toys,greenery real or silk.
Line and use for sewing mics. When making liner add a small area to use for a pin cushion. Either in the line or make a small one and sew into edge
I would add a fabric liner and maybe stencil something small on the outside and keep my yarn inside or craft supplies or mittens and hats. Lots of things could be stored inside.
Hi Barb, hope this inspires you,
Clean it well and see what you have to work with. If it is need a repairs now is the time to do those.
Do you want to restore the original look or modernize it?
Depending on the condition or look of the finished product would determine if it needs to be painted to hide a multitude of sins.
Here are some more ideas:
Use for Fireside Storage of Slippers etc. or even Logs.
