A friend gave us storm windows and we designed a green house from what we were given. Purchased treated lumber posts and 2x4's to frame the house. Used Plexiglas for the upper windows and roof. Purchased wire shelving to install 4 nine foot shelves. The stone floor was already set from the previous greenhouse. It measures 8 /2 'x9 1/2'.
Recycled Windows Make Creative Green House
After much internet searching and figuring, we came up with a different plan for our greenhouse.
Replaced the glass with plexiglass and painted the frame yellow.
After all four sides were completed, we added a corrugated Plexiglas roof and framed it out for a finished look.
Wanted a little pizazz added to the top, so we used Plexiglas inserts that I frosted and then added a few designs. To frost the Plexiglas, I used water sand paper and rubbed the clear Plexiglas until it turned opaque.
Since this is the view of the greenhouse that we see from our patio, I made vinyl letters from my Cricut ... "La Nostra Serra" ( Our Green House in Italian) and a few Fleur di Lis designs. I love the way it turned out!
We placed the garden work table along the back wall and installed the wire shelves. I then hung an old frame above the table for a finishing touch. The garden table is in a previous post. I knew just how I wanted it to look in the finished greenhouse.
After 7 long weeks, we finally have a green house that we both absolutely love!
