OK Woody did want to carry on with it but dad wanted it out so it has been took out of living room and put in garage at mo all painted now

Painted the lid frame today still drying outside

Lyn I have PM'd you

I have painted the coldframe now Cuprinol shades country cream on inside and a paint dad had for like a clear ish colour to keep the pallet wood effect sadolin paint

I am sitting in the living room as I have taken over with the cold frame being stunk out  - still the wood edge of the lid to paint to do tomorrow outside smelly paint 

Handle to sort out and hinges to attach with help on that bit and weed matting - then major task of carrying it down the garden and putting it in place

Hello all

Painting coldframe for me today


Posted: 23/12/2014 at 11:50

Thanks Lyn

 A few of the new pallets maybe for the front garden on top of the wall want it to be higher up.  I am on a waiting list to get an allotment so some may go that way - still need to make the pallet bench with back for next to the pond 

The coldframe is being made from one of the other pallets that I took all the wood off, prob one of the ones near the begin of getting pallets - just took a while to get around to getting it built

Lots of bulbs still to be planted up the station and a few plants

Have daffs, tulips, alliums, irises in tyre planters and crocus  - new bulbs going to be planted English bluebells and corms crocosmia Lucifer donated from Woody , I will try and put pics on station thread when the bulbs appear  

I will put a few pics of cold frame when finished going to paint the inside today country cream colour

New allotment OMG...
