Garden: Recycled Window Greenhouse

By Sue Hinely 20 36

This is our Garden Greenhouse made of old wooden windows. Nail four together for the bottom. Then hinge two together for the top so that one side opens. Use "L" brackets for holding the top windows to the bottom ones. Used a piece of 1x2 foot wood for bracing, then nailed it to an old end table.

Hey, geting ready within the next 2 weeks to replace my single pane metal windows. I have over 20 of them pretty much standard size and in good shape. Just live in an area where airplane noise is a problem and will be putting in double plane windows. Live in Inglewood, CA email: iris349 AT gmail.com
