It's almost time for City Wide Clean-Up in Boone. We're moving away the weekend of the clean up (very very convenient for us!), but I'm going to miss the great finds I snatched up. One of my favorite things was our new screen door to our porch.This week's Flashback Friday features our porch door before & after. Enjoy!
Salvaged Screen Door Before & After
I've been so excited to show off this before and after. It took FOREVER. It seemed like every time I went to work on it, we had something come up. I suppose that is just summer in general. We have this unusual entry way behind our house. The entry would be open if it wasn't for the need to keep the dogs in the fenced in yard. When we moved in (& as you know, we rent), there was a door that did the trick for a while. However, it seemed that the wind wasn't its friend, and it's looking quite brutal.
What a sad looking door. During city wide clean up, I found this awesome door. So, the door was free. However, it was in pretty rough shape. It needed a good clean up and deconstruction.
|This is how I found the door on the curb. Sad and dirty.|
|Time to sand it down and remove that scary looking screen. I thought I might cut a finger off.|
|What a great chance to use my detail sander accessories for the first time! Love LOVE it. As you may remember, I did a review of my sander here.|
All sanded and repainted. I had some chicken wire sitting around from a purchase at the Habitat for Humanity store. Yes, they sell chicken wire there. I think I paid 2 bucks for a huge roll.
|As an FYI: The project was quite affordable. With new paint, chicken wire, hinges and boards to frame in the door, we spent around $20.00.|
