Break It or Take It: Bird Glass Canisters

I guess I’ll go ahead and officially declare this “share your shopping finds” week. As I mentioned the other day, I scored loads of good stuff on my shopping travels this weekend and got a few deals that certainly classify into my “break it or take it” category. For those out of the loop, I’m always on the lookout for items that are near matches to a more expensive product but cost less. The idea being, you could either break the bank on an item from a big retail chain, like Pottery Barn…where, let’s face it, their lovely goods can set you back a pretty penny. Or, you could find a bargain on an item that is a dead ringer for the original.

Anyway, I promise we’ll get back to painting and home improvement fabulousness soon but for now, chew on this:


Pottery Barn Bird Glass Canister (size small) $29


Then, found this beauty at HomeGoods this weekend. While it isn’t utterly identical, it is certainly extremely similar and inspired by these canisters.

HomeGoods Bird Glass Canister (approximately size small) $5.99

So there you have it.

Stay tuned because hopefully we’ll have some more paint sample options to share tomorrow!
