Old Windows to Mini Greenhouse

Who: Steve Ashby
Where: Mount Pleasant, North Carolina

Steve snagged 56—yes, 56—divided-light wood windows for free when the church he attends was remodeled. He used 11 of them to make this greenhouse for his wife, Cara, to start seedlings in, finishing it off with leftover wire shelving and a piece of metal cap from his porch's old roof.

Cost: $11
