Greenhouse blinds?
« on: June 15, 2017, 10:00 »
I'd like to use some recycled Venetian blinds to shade the roof of my greenhouse. Please does anyone have any good ideas about how I can attach them (inside)? Has anyone tried this before, perchance?

I look forward to your ingenious ideas, as always!

Thanks a lot,

Pim.

If you have the kind of greenhouse frame you can screw vine eyes, too, you can wire or cable tie the blinds  to these to keep them up

Thanks! I haven't, unfortunately - but I'm thinking I can maybe bolt small L-shaped brackets to the frame, and then fix the blinds to them... Or something! 😂
