Build a greenhouse out of recyclables #Plants & Gardening#great-ideas#upcycling#windows May 30 | Cat Rocketship 'Round my parts, it's pretty damn easy to find old wood-framed windows. They come out of farmhouses, falling down foreclosed homes…I see them in so many projects I wonder if there isn't a country-window-growing breed of tree propagating in the Midwest. Here's a good idea on how to use any cache of windows you come across — make 'em work as a backyard greenhouse! This is such a nice size, I could even fit it in my non-existent backyard!

I'd love to restore my 1890 home with those! Still, what a pretty idea to reuse something that someone would otherwise throw away. Might make a nice "sun room" too…just tuck in a little reading nook and open the windows for a little breeze. Beautiful. 0 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Comment Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
