Windmill from reused materials

Here is a garden windmill a friend of mine created entirely from scratch without spending anything or even using a blueprint (she's amazing that way). She used what she had on hand and used free "throw away" house materials at a building/home improvement store.  The blades on the windmill are composed of an old counter top (formica) that was going to be thrown out. She cut the formica in the shape of blades and then painted them in a cute design. The structure is made of wood scraps and there is a plastic lattice used on the sides of the base for plants to grow on. Check it out!
