    Now I just need birds.

    There's a bit (teeny bit) more info and another pic on my blog: http://curiositycat.wordpress.com/2013/01/01/1592/

    Eventually, I'll post a how-to there as well. Also, I intend to paint the whole thing a shabby-chic distressed off white eventually... eventually... eventually.

    Happy New Year!

    Neat idea! Now you just have to pull out the next two drawers and make a "garden apartment"... [​IMG]

    Ha! You guys are awesome. :) Thanks. The drawers below hold food & extra equipment. HOWEVER, there is that other chest of drawers in the basement... install lights... grow lettuce... hm. Thank you for the suggestion!
