My wife found this great retro chrome kitchen flour canister while we were out junkin' a few weeks ago.  Once I started with it I knew I wanted to stay with chrome, silver and silverplate things to keep it shiny all the way through.  There's a ton of customization and modifying parts that pulled this birdhouse together.  It can also be used in the home as storage!

Georgia, they're called buttresses.
