    Default My new piece of furniture

    Hi!

    I grow my Phals on a windowsill, that now in spring/summer receives less light (not direct sunlight). In order to give my dear orchids a little more, I thought of building something to put them on a corner with more light, next to my bed.

    This is my idea. I hope you like it!!! Still it isn't properly assembled, so I haven't put the plants on it.

    Great idea! Be sure to post a shot with your plants on it too! I like the look of the wood and glass. Very creative!

    Cheers,

    I like the glass blocks. I would never have thought to use something like that, but it is such a good idea! They will let the light through to your plants.
