Wonderful Windows and Doors in the Garden

Abigal
2017年07月28日
If you are looking for a way to add some whimsy or character to your garden, you have a pretty safe bet if you use windows and doors to amp up the pretty. Windows and doors both add a sense of mystery to a garden, a wonder of what surprises lie just beyond where the eye can see. Add some vintage age, and you have a recipe for a delightful space that lures in even the most cynical garden visitor. You can use them as actual gateways to other garden spaces, or as garden decor that only leads to another space in ones’ imagination. (I kinda like those even better!) Take these great ideas and find an inexpensive door in the home improvement center, pick up a vintage window at the salvage yard, or create your own door and window “look” with an element of new construction. But bring in a “passage-way” to your garden, (whether real or implied) and you will have a hard time keeping visitors out! Our feature photo below, is from ‘Paintbox Garden‘ via ‘Houzz’. This would be an easy way to mount a freestanding door as a gate in the garden, by sinking two large wood poles as a doorframe.

These two wood doors were repurposed by ‘BHG‘ to create this fresh take on a garden arbor. You could also use wood posts behind the doors as support here. We would recommend using a quick setting concrete to set the posts into their holes, then screw the doors into the posts.

 
These next two ideas are doors in the garden from ‘Gardening with Grace‘. The first shows an old door simply leaning against a fence as pretty decor, the second shows a very vintage door being hung from the roof overhang with two simple eye hooks. Easy! (You get doors and windows from these two ideas!)


 
From ‘Flea Market Gardening‘, this pretty chalkboard door is from Gail Brunkes. We love this door, not only does is make a pretty focal point in the garden, it’s a great way to share your thoughts with visitors! We like how she used hinges to add on a second door, creating more of a garden screen. This could easily be moved around the garden to shield a garden bed out of season or a not so pretty view when all the leaves fall. And the branches and wreath? Love this! You can buy chalkboard paint at any craft store…

 
Wanna know something cool to do with windows? Build a greenhouse that looks like one from an old English garden! This is a DIY tutorial on how to build a greenhouse with windows from ‘”Global Garden Friends’.

 
Lovin’ this repurposed window garden shelf tutorial from Debbie at ‘Refresh, Restyle’! Easy project and the garden tool handles made me smile, I love the whimsy.

 
Want a cute garden decor piece? Love birds, like I do? Then try this quick and easy tutorial from Teri at ‘Hometalk‘. She got the window frame for free, then cut and painted the birds herself from plywood. Could you find some precut versions at the craft store?

 
From ‘Goessling Design‘ via ‘Houzz’, this homeowner had a window like structure made to act as both an arbor and a patio fence as well.

 
We saved the most amazing for last! From ‘Country Living‘, this “chic shed” from Donna Jenkins, owner of ‘Tinkerhouse Trading Company‘ is awwwww-some! Sorry, I just ran out of words cool enough for this garden! The greenhouse shed is made up entirely of windows, and there are a couple of vintage doors making this one of the most enviable gardens we’ve seen this season! Check out the whole article,and watch for the opening of her online shop. Photos by Gridley and Graves.
