Cold frame success, utilizing 100% reused materials

Cold frame with windows donated by my friends Norm & Laurie!

After seeing my plight on the blog, it was great to hear from Norm, a friend from church, who offered to share some windows he had saved at his home.  They were stored under a blue tarp by his garage, and were left over from when the windows were replaced in his home.

Turns out a couple of them were a good fit with the frame I had constructed.  I was especially careful in handling them, and so far they're all in tact.  No broken glass... what a pane that was ;-)

I used stain on the frame that I had previously purchased for use on our garden fence posts.  Can't wait to get them out in the garden!
