*this blog post does not contain sugar. you've been warned.*
When we visited my dad earlier this summer, we got a look at how his greenhouse is coming along. I know this post is a departure from the usual...sugar and spice and everything fattening. So many people were interested in the greenhouse when I posted a picture of it on Instagram, I thought I'd give a closer look here.
So, my dad is building a (giant) greenhouse made of vintage windows, doors, and reclaimed wood.Here it is:
I really can't even comprehend how people build things. It's so impressive to me. Dad is good at this stuff.
Let's go in...
I love this old door.
This fan is one that I remember my dad having in the garage ever since I was a little girl.
Some of the glass he's had for ages...I remember my mom decorating with them. Some were picked up at various places for this project. Most of the wood is reclaimed. Dad lives at a lake (yes, there's a lake in Amarillo!), so this is old dock wood.
I guess if we were hipsters, we'd call this an upcycled greenhouse.
These windows will swing open.
I love that my dad is so handy. He always has been. I told him that maybe at age 70, he needs to start a new business....kind of like those Treehouse guys on TV. ;)
