    Make side tables out of them. I would love to have those. Lucky you

    I would probably hang them in a corner as they were intended to be. Fill them with plants or maybe arrangements. They probably would be too small to use as furniture.

    Make sconces. They are lovely and nostalgic. Do you have a barn? They would be lovely there.

    Stand them either one or two together as Garden Seats if they would take the weight or use as Wall planters.........Enjoy!

    I’d use at least one in my son’s room. Turn upside down, put in corner and put as many of his 72? and counting stuffed animals in there and recover his loft again! They have really taken over his bed! We’ve tried to do update his room as he’s headed into his teen years—not quite ready to let go of his collection (thank you Pixar and the Toy Story movies!), yet too many for a 13 foot wide row home—so this would be perfect for the style we’ve gone for and that he lives about his room. I’ve just not been able to bring myself to purchase a “hammock” or some stringed thing to put them in as more of “display” at this stage of his life. And I’m not sure how big this actually is, but that is a first thought. :-)

    Another more grown up thought would be if you have a fenced in patio/back yard (snug like ours—remember 13’ wide), I think they’d be lovely, again turned upside down, hung in the corners, lined with moss, then filled soil and have some beautiful plants going up (thinking more spike) and flowing down (like vinca or sweet potato vines) with pops of color (begonias or impatiens)! Voilá! Fun equipmentbto repurpose! Enjoy and post what you decide!

    Put hooks on each rung and hang pans on them. Or put hooks and various chain lengths on each rung and hang pictures.

    I agree with Emily. They’re perfect to hang, You can wire chicken wire inside, stuff around the lose moss, then plant with flowers or succulents and cactuses. Just saw it online and it looked awesome.

    Put them together against a wall and find a nice piece of wood, or maybe glass. Make an interesting table.

    Maybe you could use them for the Kiddos bicycle parking...

    What about using them as brackets for a shelf. Would be so decorative.
