Trash to Treasure: Vintage Heating Grates

Robb Whittlef shares three great ideas for old heating grates.

Plant Stand
Secure a square grate to the top of an old column. (Add a wood piece to the bottom to stabilize, if necessary.) Place a piece of glass on top for a smooth surface.

Candle Box
Construct a box to fit a grate and set candles on top. (The box becomes a reservoir for the melted candle wax.)

Planter Box
Construct a wood box to fit a floor grate, secure with screws and paint. Add your favorite potted plants and enjoy!
