I found an old cast iron stove similar to this (but prettier) in my basement.

I can't use it for its intended use, because the house is no longer "fitted" for this stove. I thought about using it for a plant stand, but I don't know what type of house plants will survive with the low light conditions of my basement. (Any plant suggestions would be awesome!)

I also thought about using it to store spare charcoal for the grill. (Sort of tongue in cheek. Storing fuel in a heating appliance just struck me as funny....okay, maybe it's not funny, but the charcoal would stay dry.)

What about putting a piece of wood (painted) on top and make a small table out of it? I think that would be cute! I'm not sure about the plants...I do NOT have a green thumb.
