The temperature has been so amazing lately, and spring arrived way before it was supposed to. In Northern New Jersey, it is unheard of to have the leaves budding and bursting open in March! Of course, we are taking advantage of the weather, and have pulled out the cushions for the outdoor furniture—and even though we know it is too early to plant anything, a gal can dream, can’t she?
Like you, at Create & Decorate magazine, we love all things repurposed, and are always trying to come up with ways to reuse architectural finds—especially in our gardens. This weekend while out browsing, I spotted a small greenhouse constructed of 6 used windows: 4 window panels were used for the walls, and 2 were used for the roof pitch. Perfect for a patio! (Just try and eat my potted flowers through THAT, you pesky deer!) So, of course, I turned to trusty Google for more inspiration.
CalFinder Nationwide Remodelers has a post from 2009 that is well worth clicking over to read “7 outrageous ways to reuse broken windows”. The photography shared below is borrowed from their site so that we may share our excitement over their ideas:
Be inspired, be sure to read the blog post we mentioned, and seize the spring inspiration!
