Greenhouse Inspiration

When we moved into our new house there was an old greenhouse that was pretty dirty, with a weed filled floor and surrounded by overhanging branches. I gave it a good clean and started using it but it quickly became our new log store and last year turned into our sudo shed as we had to tear down the old rotten shed. But finally we are erecting a new metal shed and wooden log store so my greenhouse can become an exclusively a greenhouse. It is in a fairly prominent part of the garden on a cement base and gets loads of sun so we have decided to keep it where it is. So of course I not only want it to be super organized and practical but I also want it to look pretty and match the rest of my garden decor...

For my book 'Torie Jayne's Stylish Home Sewing' I made a gardeners apron and kneeler using a duck egg blue and grey spot oilcloth with purple trim. I decided to use this as the starting point for my colour palette. Since then I have scoured the internet and local shops for plant pots and propagators trays to match my colour theme along with shelving and have been upcycling old tin pots. In the next few weeks I am laying a new floor in my greenhouse and then the fun part, decking it out in all my new, old and recycled finds. Here's my greenhouse inspiration...
