Welcome to the 46th Metamorphosis Monday!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’ve been out of state visiting my son and his sweetie. It was a whirlwind trip and so much fun. My son gave me a tour of the law school he’s attending, as well as a tour of the wonderful historic building where he works with a local firm. We did a little shopping on Black Friday and went to see A Christmas Carol on Saturday. It was a great trip and I’m so looking forward to when they come home to Georgia for Christmas.
I have a fun metamorphosis to share with you today. A while back, while out antiquing with a friend, I came across something that was sooooo cute, I knew I had to share it with you!
Here’s your first little peek.
A second peek…
Have you figured out what it is? Okay, I won’t torture you any longer. I have to warn you though, it may send youu on a mad hunt looking for old, abandoned windows so you can make one for yourself.
It’s a greenhouse made completely from old discarded windows. Isn’t that a wonderful way to recycle those old windows when you replaced your with energy efficient ones! Come a little closer and take a look inside…
This would be great to decorate for holidays like they have done here, or to decorate throughout the year for the seasons.
If you collect the Dept. 56 lit houses, this would be a wonderful place to build a small village or vignette.
Here’s a little view through the door way…
I took pics from different angles, so you could see how it’s constructed. The first few pics of this post show some close-ups of the details.
Wouldn’t it be really cute in a sun room, on a front porch or a screened-in porch?
Really, I could see using it in almost any room. I didn’t buy it since it was well over $300, but I took lots of pics so I could remember how it was constructed and so I could share it with you. I think we could make one of these if we put our minds to it!
So, don’t throw out those old windows when you get your new energy efficient ones. They will make a wonderful glass house or greenhouse and a great spot to display your collectibles and create wonderful vignettes.
Update: This greenhouse was still there in April 2010 and it was decorated for Easter. To see pictures of how it looked at Easter, visit here: Make a Greenhouse from Discarded Windows.
Looking forward to seeing all your “Before and Afters.”
