Will you entertain here? Any need to add some "bar tables" to the sides of these? Hang some lights?? Call some friends over? You could add hinges to the tables and they could be raised if the occasion presented itself??

You could line them well the create a fountain inside and use the pot as a beautiful water feature! Or you could plant a garden in it or even take it apart to build a picnic table,etc

Do u want to make a statement? With this size...they prettty much are already...How about putting an arborvitae (tall variety) in the middle/surrround it with ornamental shrub or grasses and hang out trailing plants all around the rim?..Also the arborvitaes could be shaped into topiaries or spirals....then stain the wood on the planter...Those would be very interesting planters.

If you don't want to use them in landscaping, or salvage the wood...I was thinking..turn them upside down and cut openings for a kid's playhouse, if u have kids.
