That is wild! Is it as tall as it appears? Garden sculpture?

You could put it in a bathroom and use it for towel storage. Roll towels up, put one in the center on the bottom, then three around that a level up, then four or five around that so that it looks like the owl has towels sticking out of its head.

That is funky and fun.

I fill my umbrella stand with rolled beach mats. I think yours would look fine empty and in a corner somewhere.

Umbrella stand was my first thought.....planter with tall fake branches (Michaels), obviously no watering needed

dedtired - too funny! I thought umbrella stand too, but I like the idea of using it for towels or beach mats or pool noodles. Whoo knows what this can be used for??

I think I would have to buy some owl walking canes / sticks to go in it.

You could put it on the front stoop with a sign in it that says, 'Whooooooooo's there?"

Right before I sat down to the computer, I was piddling with the umbrellas in the umbrella stand. My umbrella is a black and gold leopard print if anyone's interested. lol

I would use it as an umbrella stand.

Looking at the picture again, it's not an umbrella stand because there's no tray on the bottom to catch water. But you could still use it as an U.S. but don't put any wet umbrellas in it. :)

Or just put it on a tray to catch water from umbrellas.

You have to tell us how big it is. Looks too tall for umbrellas to me?

LOL Kate

Put it in the bathroom filled with rolls of toilet paper...no one will need fear getting "stranded" without a roll....

If you fill it with stuff, it will detract from the "coolness" of it. I'd leave it as is and put it in front of a bright, solid colored wall!
