This past spring I had to cut an old tree that was deteriorated to a point of risking falling. After the cut the area was left empty, horrible, and unattractive. I had no idea of what to do to make it look pleasant.
Few weeks after, I was leaving home and noticed that few streets down a neighbor were having his whole house windows replaced. The contractor’s truck was loaded with most of the old windows; however, few still remained on the street. I said to myself, are all these windows going to be dumped in the land field? What can I do with them???
Well, I drove back to the house and asked the contractor if I could have a couple of the windows. He was more than pleased that someone could use them. I decided to get three. What for? I had no idea. So, I came back home and left them sitting there until some ideas came to my mind. Shortly thereafter, an idea came up and I decided to do something with one of them in the area of my garden, where the tree was. I asked my husband if he could make some sort of stand to hang a window. He surprised me by creating a nice frame. What happened next is crazy. I decided to create a “Garden Room” in that area and called it the Yellow Room. By the way, I retrieved the two old Adirondack chairs left in the curb for the trash truck to pick-up, from another neighbor who was moving out and left the unwanted furniture as trash. My gardens “Yellow Room” only cost me the can of yellow paint and the few wood scraps used by my husband to build the window frame. WINNER!
