If you remember my post on Adding Whimsy, I talked about wanting a screen door
for my laundry room. Well, just before Christmas, at Sweet Salvage's monthly sale,
I found this baby... went home and asked my husband if having the right width or height
on a door was better and he said height. So I ran back and purchased this black rusted
screen door for my Christmas present and here it is installed!
BEFORE...notice the counters and the base cabinet....
they have looked like this for years! Yuck!
just a little honed cararra left over from the kitchen and then a coat of
Martha Stewart paint in Dill on the cabinets, some new hardware and of course...
some feet for the cabinet
made out of cutting these brackets in half.
I have used these brackets EVERYWHERE in our house.
I should do a post on all the places I have used
these stock Home Depot brackets.
I love all the rusty vintage details on this door.
This rusty latch...
the rusty knob and weathered patina...
but most of all I love how the rusted and broken screen is just the right size
to work as this...
a cat door.
This keeps the dog out of Marshmallow's food which is now on the floor
in the laundry room.
This screen is just perfect! Don't you agree?
I am working on a well stock pantry and a kitchen reveal post!
I have to go and prune 50+ old fashioned roses now...
the work on the farm is never done and I actually love it!
