My wife needed more space for growing and hardening off new plant starters for our garden. We had already been using the planters along the driveway for summer crops and decided we could extend their usefulness into the spring and fall with some cold-frames.
We fortunately had a neighborhood friend replacing their old windows with new vinyl and were able to get several perfectly sized double hanging hand-me-downs for this project. The rest was scrap wood and a few sets of hinges.
My goal was to fashion something that wouldn’t require permanent installation and not take up too much space in storage when not in use. You can see in the third photo where the frame comes apart to make the pieces small enough to fit in the attic of the garden shed.
I was pleased with the results and hope it inspires someone else to do the same!
PS – These photos were taken before we had a chance to put a few coats of exterior paint on them. When painted all white, they blend right into the side of the house!
