Garden: Recycled Window Greenhouse

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.

I am not trying to bust your bubble on this great idea because i do like it. But did you check the paint and glazing on the windows they could have lead and asbestos on them because they look pretty old. We do restoration work mainly windows and most of the old windows we run into have lead paint and asbestos in the glazing. They have a test for these at lowes or the depot or send or take them to a lab. Its not anything to mess with. Just trying to be informative.
