More Than A Little Bit Shabby

In my next to last post I had part of my little greenhouse. The poor little thing is looking pretty shabby. I bought it at The Wimberley Market Days (In Wimberley Texas) about 7 years ago. At that time it was all glass windows. It has been outside in my back and front yards for all these years. I didn't have any way to replace the roof window when it almost fell apart so I got a sheet of trailer skirting, cut into two pieces and then antiqued it down to look old. I have replaced one of the side windows and now a lot of the panes are gone in some of the other windows. I added gingerbread scrolls to the front and a piece of tin ceiling trim across the front. In the past I had an outdoor spotlight in the top back and a cute terracotta statue and flowers inside. Now it sports an old watering can and some pink silk geraniums. I'd like to find a way to give it a makeover so I can continue to look at it in my garden. It's like an old friend, always there no matter what the weather.

Thank you thank you for showing us a close up of this sweet sweet little greenhouse! Oh how I would love one of these!! I actually found a tall old windown in our basement (still discovering things in this house!!) - don't know how to do anything with just 1 but guess it is a start!
