Decorating Your Conservatory

Susanne Hudson used windows from the dump, 2" X 4" 's, opaque corrugated roofing panels, old doors, & #89 granite gravel, below, to create her conservatory. Inside, plenty of seating, lighting, & art.
Tables, cushions,

fabrics & collections.

A color palet. A few plants too.

Can't wait to begin building my conservatory. Hunting/gathering now. Dahlings, there's zero budget for this. Adore the challenge. Getting what I want at MY price point. Soon I'll be: hammering, shoveling gravel, painting, then, ta-da, decorating my conservatory.

What a delightful place to get in out of the wind and rain! I so aspired to such a structure, but we gave away the old windows and compromised with a polycarbonate model.

Be sure to budget for wiring and plumbing and heating, our biggest DIY expense. Do be careful when you are climbing on ladders during construction.

I am envious. Looks just like me.

I love this idea! And I even know of an outlet for old windows close by :)

Love it. I am always at the dump.
I will keep a look out for some more windows. Clever idea.

This is a good one, a really good one.

Outside in, in side out, this is a perfect place to be, it really is. Send me the hanging light if poss!

I can't wait to see it! I just adore conservatories. I do have my miniature one out under the pavilion however!
