This ashtray came out of my parents' attic and I've been hanging onto it for a while now. Decided to paint it and add some embellishments and now it's in my garden.
Marlene, very good repurposing. Looks just right next to your totem.
You sure picked out a good color & that beautiful glass dish for your revitalization! Looks great! Jeanne S.
Cute good way to use it .
Very pretty. Love the colors. Looks good in the garden.
I think I have 1 something like that in the garage from a yard sale, always going to do something with it. Yours turned out very cute! Jan
REALLY pretty! It looks so good there, and the colors are wonderful.
This is absolutely beautiful!! I'm already hoping I can find an ashtray stand.
I love that blue with the doves and the pretty blue plate. The crystals are a great touch too. Just gorgeous!
How beautiful!! You did a great job and I love the totem!----Sheri
great job on that!!
Hmmmm my DD has one like that I must figure out how to make her part with it LOL.... Cheesy grin on my face, I'll have to bribe her with something
Love it! Everything you do is beautiful. You are on my list of garden junkers to watch.
REALLY PRETTY ! I love those colors :)
What a pretty set up.... I too will have to start looking :)
There's that pretty aqua blue that you like to use (me too). I like how that turned out, especially how you are using the birds here lately. I have an ashtray sort of like that on the deck for a few of our friends that still smoke.
Very nice! Now that I want one, I won't find it! LOL Thanks for the great idea!Wish me luck finding one!
Marlene, your ashtray is great!!! I was so inspired, and I found one at an estate sale yesterday! ($5) Showed DH the picture that you posted....asked me "where are you going to find something like that?" I answered, "how about the trunk of my car!" Now, about finishing it, does rustoleum primer work well for you? Re the color, I don't know if I want to go patina or a color similar to yours. I'm gluing bunny figures to mine.
I seem to remember priming it with Rustoleum primer, but I actually painted it last fall. But any primer should do. Then I spray painted it the color you see...it's not patina, it's a mismixed quart of outdoor paint from Lowe's, but I loved the color!
GREAT colors! That is sooo pretty!
