New Metal Roof on the Greenhouse and a Sneak Peek of the Inside

Back on April 9th,    I shared the progress I was making on my mini makeover in the greenhouse.       I got busy with put my makeover on hold.       Fast forward to April 29th ...........we had a big storm and the greenhouse roof suffered a lot of hail damage.      Almost all of the panels had hail damage and the entire top section of the  roof had to be replaced.     H decided that he would put a metal roof on the greenhouse this time to avoid hail damage in the future.

Makeover on April 9th.....................................................................Sneak Peek at new makeover

Look at all those big holes in the roof!

H took all the panels off .........

I'm not a roofer,   so about all I could do to help H was to hand him tools and cold drinks while he was up on the roof.

Here''s a photo of the first metal panels he put on,.........

Here's a photo of the last metal panel that H put on the roof.

I love the new metal panels......they give the greenhouse a farmhouse look!

Now that the roof is on,    it's my turn to finish the makeover that I started in April. 

  Here's how it looked when I started.

I hung an architectural piece on the beam over the potting bench.      Then,    I placed a wooden Farmhouse sign on the top shelf of the potting bench.

I got both pieces in the 75% off isle at Hobby Lobby yesterday.......$ $12.50

I decorated the potting bench with weathered birdhouses and a basket of white petunia's that I planted in a pink water hose.

I hung chandeliers filled with bird nests on each side of the farmhouse sign. 

Today,     H is giving the benches for the greenhouse a coat of pink paint and I'm adding some of the final decorating touches.         

I hope you'll come back to visit when I reveal the complete makeover!
