Reading gardening books might be the end of me.  I get tons of ideas and don't know where to start.  At one point I got smart and decided to start at the beginning:  indoor seed starts. First thing was to build a light stand.  Then we could grow greens in the middle of winter without having to finish the greenhouse.

Step 1: Get Yer Stuff Together

Collect / Scrounge / Buy:
2- 2' fluorescent lights (used if you can)
Scrap wood
Assorted fasteners & hardware
Saw, drill, stuff like that
This looks beautiful! The finished stand has an old-fashioned furniture feel, and the lights don't detract from the rest of the kitchen. (Our kitchen looks like a martian landing with our seed flats at the moment....) Nicely done :)
I love this! It's a great use of space.
Thanks, It's nice to have something green in the house this time of the year.
