If you look at your materials tab in the properties panel, you'll notice that there are several different material slots. The one you want to use (Material.004) is not the first one, so it is not the default one that Blender will choose.

To fix this, go into edit mode, select the faces you wish this material to affect, and click on the "assign" button in the Materials tab.
