I've had this electric burner base for a while now.  It was actually sitting out in the yard for a couple of months.  I cleaned it up and paired it up with a couple of vintage chrome kitchen canisters.  From there I knew I wanted to go Art Deco (ish) with the style of this piece.  A part from a vintage typewriter provided the "awning".  A car emblem, some chrome bathroom faucet handles, napkin rings, silverplate pie server and much more complete this one.  This birdhouse piece can be used for storage with the original removable tops!
