Decorating with antique baby cradle

My family's antique baby cradle is not in use just now (between generations). I'm looking for ideas of how to use it as a decorating piece. Something more that "fill it with plants/flowers". It is currently sitting in my upper hallway. It measures approximately 33 inches by 20 inches. Thanks for any thoughts!

I'd store some quilts in it, but you could put just about anything in there from dolls, to stuffed animals, extra pillows, etc. With the bathroom right next to it, you could even use it for extra towels.

If you've got kids, you could use that as a toy bin. Or like Blondesense said, since it's beside the bathroom you could put towels in it. Just make sure your kids don't hang wet towels on it because that'll destroy the varnished finish.
