    If you can drill a couple of holes on the base, mount it on a wall for a shelf??

      @Cathy hi I agree I have already had my wife tell me she doesn't want it looking like we belong to some bull worshiping cult so this idea might be out

    I would use it as the front legs on a table, using two black pipe legs in the back. It's really cool and worth using.

      @Kackie3 my wife is a symmetry person that would dive her nuts it would be fantastic wouldn't it maybe I have to forge another one

    My first thought was to mount it on a wall and hang dried herbs, flowers, whatever from the center bar. If it is too big for interior, mount it on a board and use it as a boot scraper? have fun and enjoy!

    Hang it in the bathroom for a hand towel rack

    • Chris L Chris L on May 06, 2015
      @Jackie coles yes the bent bar would be great just to heavy I think

      @Chris L Yup! Go simple and enjoy the 'design' on its own. :-) Sometimes there are things that need to be left 'as is' rather than trying to 'upcycle', repurpose, etc. My sister in law has all kinds of found iron and metal objects interspersed in her garden and it's really cool! She lives in the country so it works very nicely.

    turn it upside down and use it as a base for a trough planter or a window box type planter. You could secure it to a heavy plywood base through the square hole if you needed more stability.

    • Chris L Chris L on May 06, 2015
      @Ilona Elliott never thought of that I will mull over that it could just work

    I would create a windchime out of it and hang in a tree. Im sure you could find other crafty crap to hang from it. It's very cool.
