    if you want it to be 4" square when finished, add 1/2" to the sides and ends (4 1/2 x 8 1/2), because you'll take up 1/4" on each end & side in the sewing of the seam.

  • If someone has a small or tiny yard, this would be perfect. Not everyone has a large enough space for a canopy, let alone the increased cost. I think this is a great idea for those who would like just this size. It can be adjusted for those who have the size requirements for a larger piece.Good job!! Thanks for the 'ible!!

  • I especially like the salt, waxed paper, and the hot glue gun tips - showed them to my hubby & these are going to be used in a project we have to do now, making a window frame on our new hardwood floor (don't have a work table)!

  • Wow - this truly IS gold to me - I work at a small town (hamlet) library, and we have a lot of magazines on our shelves - this would be perfect for some of our magazine stacks. I'm guessing that I can figure out a way to untie and retie magazines when they're returned, if several people want to get just one. It will certainly make it easier to put on the shelves!

    I think the reason she didn't put dimensions in, is that each person would want a different size. I think the whole point of the video is to show that it can be easily done with only a few tools (jigsaw and hammer are pretty basic tools) and that pretty much anyone can do it. The structure's the thing :D

  • So cute!! When we get our hot tub installed and up & running again, I'm going to make this as a celebratory cake for our Arctic Spa hot tub!!!

  • Step 5 refers to step 6 for the reason - in order to give a sheen to the metal, you need to sand it. If it's flush to the wood, you are also sanding the wood, not just the metal.

  • yes - as new windows get more expensive, more & more people are turning to recycling companies to get their windows. And if they have an older house these would keep the "flavour" of the older home. Triple paned windows are not only expensive but don't match homes of older eras.I would want to know where the recycling companies exist that don't charge an arm & a leg for old, recycled windows! They're becoming increasingly rare!

  • Someone commented that a cement floor should be put in, but as was stated in the directions - City approval is required in most places, to put a structure on a cement floor so he used cinder blocks to put the posts in. I suppose he could have also put some cement into the bottom of the blocks, so wood would not touch ground.As for the lead paint - that was only used on windows of a certain era, correct? Getting windows of a later era should stop that being an issue.I like the up-cycling of the windows, stones, and old greenhouse parts - what an Awesome amount of re-purposing items that others no longer want/need. Talk about "one man's trash is another man's treasure"!!!!
