I purchased this not knowing what it is or what I'm going to do with it. Looking for suggestions? Thanks!!

Take it back? LOL JK

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

An owl umbrella stand?

Umbrella stand was my reaction too.

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

A T-owl holder?

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??

T-owl holder! Good one!


 o
RE: What would you do?

It's very cool looking!


 o
RE: What would you do?

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


 o
RE: What would you do?

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

planter for a tall snake plant

tp holder

Here is a link that might be useful: snake plant

put a candle in it...it's cute though.


 o
RE: What would you do?

cut out the bottom and slip it on for a halloween costume. you might need panties, though.

RE: What would you do?

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.


 o

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. :)


 o
RE: What would you do?

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


 o
RE: What would you do?

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

LOL Kate


 o
RE: What would you do?

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

put cat toys (especially long wand types) in there


 o
RE: What would you do?

Kate,

Love it, LOL!!


 o
RE: What would you do?

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!
