Hexagon Greenhouse

The tutorial for this project is found HERE.

I was invited to join 7 other bloggers to create something for my home for a “Crafting for Charity” event through Homes.com. We each created something and picked a charity.  The blogger whose project wins the most votes, gets to give a $5,000 donation to their charity. The details (and the voting) are on the Homes.com Facebook page on the top where their tabs are. One voter will randomly be picked to win $500 :) So go vote!

I have always wanted an indoor greenhouse but the ones I have come across were too small. I decided to figure out a way to make one myself.

I was originally going to build one from scratch but when I found this 6 foot curio cabinet on our local classifieds for only $25 I knew I couldn’t build one for that cheap. I came up with a plan to transform it into the greenhouse of my dreams :)

The curio was sadly outdated and very BLAH. But the shape was amazing and all that glass would be perfect for a greenhouse!

I actually have this in my bedroom right now. That might seem like a weird place for a green house, but my room is so sunny and I LOVE waking up and seeing it. Plants make me happy :)

I would love it if you would go and vote for my project on the Homes.com Facebook page. My charity is The Children’s Justice Center that provides care for abused children.

    Okay that is so awesome!! I never in my mind would have been able to have the vision to get it from point a to b you truly are talented!

    Seriously, amazing!! I have a curio shaped just like this but with more wood than brass. I’ve been wanting to sell it because its so dated. But, wow, I am in love with this and will definitely be doing something similar. I’m inspired!

    I can’t get over how beautiful this is! I love that you have it in your bedroom–how therapeutic! I’m just picturing myself waking up and opening the little doors to give the plants some water… Love it! You get my vote!

    Stacy, that is unreal! So beautiful. I’m obsessed with honeycomb patterns and greenhouses, how you managed to marry the two amazes me. ;-) Awesome stuff!

    I love this idea but how about some simple details regarding the transformation??? Just a picture with no explanation is unfriendly and condescending. Hope you post the “rest of your blog post”. The end result is very clever and lovely.
