I am not sure if this will work for you, but an idea is to turn it into a bench. You could make a wooded top for it and make a nice cushion and add a whole heap of different pillows. It could also double for storage space...under the bench top you have empty space that would be great for sweaters or your seasonal clothes! If it were to be used outside you could put weather-proof cushions and pillows. It would look great in a garden or on the patio and what a conversation piece.
What about making into a coffee table? Put a pretty glass top on it. You could paint it to match your decor and even do some stencilling on it. That would be unusual but pretty. Especially if were like on a porch or sunroom.
If you have a specific room or place you are trying to incorporate it...that information would be helpful.
