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.

Great photo and ingenious use of old windows! Looks like a great size for potting plants too. Thanks for sharing with us Thrifty Funners!
Oh, hoe beautiful & functional too! Now this is one nice piece of awesome looking functional art! Post us some pictures when it's full of plants! Love it, love it, love it! (what more can I say!?)
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.
