Modified Pergola Built With Recycled Windows

Outdoors 08.21.15
It took me about one hour to decide what I would do with these windows after I picked them up off the side of the road. I built this modified pergola and I think it makes my back garden beautiful! See more @ #OutdoorProjects #Gardens

    Well this design is a little busy. But beautiful flowers won't think it is too busy. You have the right idea, I wish I had a little creativity somewhere in my body.

    Just yesterday I was visiting my friend who has amazing artisitc talent and has built the coolest place with all things he has found in the trash or picked up on the side of the road. It is sad to think that so much ends up in landfills when it could

    Hmmm. Interesting idea. I have some old storm windows that came with my house, just sitting in the garage. Thought about making a modified greenhouse so I could get an early start on a veggie garden, but this presents another idea as well. Thanks.

    Kelly it cost about 80 bucks for the poles/lumber/concrete/carriage bolts/screws. I was afraid it was going to be too sparse but it adds so much to the space. I can alter it to make it a "real" pergola later if I want to.

    I want a pergola but it's not in the budget - maybe this is my solution! Love it!

    Autumn clematis ought to go at least 30 feet. It will look great with the roses.
