Before I had an answer to the question, I painted this piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in a buttery yellow called, Arles. I love this color when it gets a healthy dose of dark wax. It has such a pretty aged appearance that says, "I've been around for a while." Perfect for vintage furniture!
So, it hung out in the garage for a while whiles I was considering it's new purpose, until my mother in law gave me this pretty little pot of violets - which fits perfectly into the ashtray opening! Of course - a plant stand!
