Country . Chic . Greenhouse

Putting together a greenhouse is certainly hard work, but it's a lot easier than you might expect. A lot of them come in kits, so all it takes is a long weekend and a couple of helpers!

When I came across a greenhouse (that practically doubles as a summer-time living room!) in Country Living, I swooned and resolved that whatever house we end up buying will need a yard large enough for something like this:

Very pretty greenhouse/cottage thingy. :D I know someone else who isn't that great of gardner. Unfortunately, if she has a plant, the next day it's already drying up.

This little greenhouse cottage is divine! I'd love to have a little place like this, and use it as my studio/office!
