    I dnt see a photo so im guessing its a larger pot like one you cook pasta or potatoes in..i use pots i no longer cook in as planters..i drill a few holes in bottom for drainage ..u can use Rustoleum and paint the pan to brighten up a patio..front entrance..

    The first thing that came to my mind was "What a great place to keep all that messy stuff in a bathroom!!" Some of these come in beautiful colors and some are just plain stainless steel. You can dress one up with a fabric skirt tied to the handles; or decorate it in many other ways.

    I don't have a Dutch Oven, so I use a wire basket and I put some jars inside to hold tooth brushes and toothpaste; another one for combs and hairbrushes; one to hold my scissors and another one for my various pencils and tall tubes like mascara!

    The when you want to wipe up the bathroom vanity top just move the pot, wipe and you are done. And nothing sticky seeps out on everything else.

    BTW, it's lid can be used to cover a frying pan if it is a round dutch oven.

    Janet: No I didn't send a is a Dutch oven with 2 handles. Do you not know what a Dutch oven is??. A 5 qt., round pan with 2 handles and a lid. Mine is old and a shade of green. Look on google you will see a Dutch oven.

      THank you Wendy for your reply!......I think I will just do as I thought in the first place.....paint it and use it as a planter on my deck. Cactus would be a good plant for it.  I will find a solution. You've been very helpful. Joanie

    This could be a wonderful planter. Lay it on its side and have the ground cover flowers flowing out
