Hello,
 I have about 10 wooden cow stantions from an old barn.. Anyone have any great ideas for them... I haven't the heart to throw them away...
thanks

Wow.  I wonder how many people actually know what a cow stantion is!  If you're a gardener, maybe you could use them like a trellis and grow climbing roses or clematis up it.  I think climbing roses would look quaint, old fashion, farmy.  Okay, now I wish I had your stantions. 

Good luck from a former cow milker.

I don't have many ideas, but one is to make a table for your foyer.  You could build the table top out from the bottom part of the stantion, then install key hooks or coat hooks above the part where the head goes. 

Or else you could put them all in a row on either side of a parsons table, and use them as backs for benches, or have them as benches or big chairs in a living or on the porch or something. 

It's hard to know what they'd be good for without knowing how they're shaped, but I think they'd make really cool furniture, anyhow.
