Sheets as Shade Cloth

We recently needed a shade cloth for our greenhouse. As my husband is currently laid-off, we couldn't afford to buy one really. So we went to the local thrift store (which supports the local animal shelter, yay for that!) and bought twin sized sheets.

We tacked and stapled them up to the rafters, and they are doing a fabulous job. Cooled the greenhouse off quite a bit, and the lettuce and cucumbers are much happier.

I wasn't really meaning to enter this tip in a contest I just wanted to share it.

Do I need to tell someone?

Editor's Note: We will make that change for you.

I think this is a great idea. I've been thinking of doing something similar for a window facing west that just gets too much sun in the summer. I'll get a few yards of inexpensive muslin so the neighbors won't have to look at patterned sheets. For your purpose the patterns don't matter however. Thanks for posting.
