On top of it sits a basket for more storage and an antique chamber pot. Funny thing about this pot... I went shopping last year for some farmhouse accents before the newspaper did a story on our house. Not the best use of my time considering the fact that I needed to be cleaning but you would have done the same, wouldn't you? Anyway, I found this charming white bowl for the kitchen. I had a spot on top of the china cabinet that needed something special. The man that helped me suggested I use it as a planter. "No way," I thought. "This is going in the kitchen." He wrapped it carefully in paper and I found a safe spot to transport it in the car. Upon arriving home, my boys came out to greet me and help unload my treasures. Then my oldest son said, "Mom, you bought an antique toilet!" "What? No, that is a bowl," I said. To which he replied, "Well, I'm not eating out of it." After some research and much to my disappointment, he was right. It will not make it to the Thanksgiving table! It is pretty in the bathroom though.
