Want to cool down a hot window? Perhaps this rain gutter planter box idea is for you! Talk about bringing the outside in in the coolest of ways!
Tammy's own issue was a very very hot window in a sun facing direction. Creating the window boxes not only helped to cool things down, it gave her a living window shade to enjoy and watch grow all summer long.
Drilling holes in the gutters was key for drainage. From there, Tammy shows you how to install these from A to Z. Fab tutorial!
What I LOVE about this:
For those with hot window directions, many resort to expensive awnings. This is such a creative and price efficient way to cool things down yet add unique beauty! Can you imagine this just outside your kitchen window filled with fresh herbs? Perfect!
