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

    You're certainly right about that Roseann - I'm anxious to see how the clematis and climbing rose do this summer!

    love this idea! wonder if the same could be done on a smaller scale with old picture frames. you'd need to paint with outdoor paint...

    Thanks Mary. In regards to your question about using picture frames - I'm not sure that they would be stable enough. Even the windows weren't tremendously stable after I took out the glass. It really surprised me.
