Modified Pergola Built With Recycled Windows

29K Views
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 @ http://www.somewhatquirkydesign.com/2012/07/building-modified-pergola-with-recycled.html

    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.

    I have been collecting windows for years (My greatest coup, twelve 12 pane windows from a dismantled Prairie styled home) I was thinking perhaps leave the glass in on the sides, and back and more open top, a warm place to sit on cool northern NYS
