Get a second computer to use it for, or give it away. Or you could get a dual video card and use the CRT as a second monitor.

Sell it or give it to someone who needs a replacement monitor.

Make it into a fishbowl. Or (if you don't have fish) make a scrap computer with really cheap bits and pieces.. Failing that sell it (probably for next to nothing) to some-one who does have something to do with it.

you could start by disassembling it

maybe turn it into an ossciliscope

or fish tank

or there's many other creative things to do with it.
