Whitney’s Wonderful Whatnot~ Thrifty Birdhouse

So my latest whatnot… this AMAZING birdcage planter. Ashley and I were out running errands on Saturday. I mentioned that I needed to run into Lowe’s and get some spray paint. I left her in the car with the kids and ran in to get only what I was going for. That was until Lowe’s put their clearance section within a few feet of the paint aisles… I was unable to maintain self control and had to go “peek”. So glad I did!! What I found was a super cute metal indoor/outdoor birdcage planter reduced to $20. Normally I don’t buy anything that is not a shanty project but this I couldn’t turn down. I may someday use it for it’s intended purpose but as for now it will be in my dining room as an accent table. You can imagine Ashley’s face as I am walking back to the car with a 4ft bird cage… I can’t say it was a face of surprise! I will be posting this whatnot with Rhoda’s Thrifty Finds over at Southern Hospitality. Check it out… LOTS of goodies there!

    I adore that birdcage. I've been eyeballing the same one at Lowe's the past couple of years but haven't been lucky enough to find at the great price you picked yours up for. I just love that the inside can be a display for just about anything during all seasons, it can be used in the garden, on the porch… love it!

    You two are so creative. I've been inspired by a few of your projects. I may even run to Lowes to see if they have a bird house like that one….and I hate birds! But it looks great.

    What a perfectly cute display piece. I like that you've placed the finials in it and placed it in front of the old window.

    OH MY WORD! Would you look at that?!?! What an absolutely fabulous display piece! I love it, it's beautiful! I can just imagine all the different things you can put inside it for the various seasons and holidays. And you got it for a steal! Why doesn't my Lowe's ever have anything half as wonderful as this? *smiles*
