Ice box--suggestions for a new use?
My parents have a very old icebox--dated 1907--the kind that people used with blocks of ice. It stands about 3.5 feet high and is about 2.5 wide by about 3 ft. long. On one side is the door where food was stored. It still has 3 metal wire shelves on that side. The other side has 2 doors--one is larger. That was the side for ice, and I assume a bucket of some sort for catching water as it melted. It's been in the basement for sometime, and they are ready to get rid of it. Any suggestions for a modern day use? I would love to bring it home, but can't think of how I might creatively use it. I thought I might store my printer in it, but the doors aren't wide enough. I would love to hear your ideas! (FYI--my home really isn't really a trash to treasure kind of place, but I could probably make it work in the family TV room or my study.)
