Screen Door Make Over
We just had to replace our glass screen door with a new sheet of plexi. Our landscaper accidentally hit it with a rock, while using the weedeater & it shattered the entire thing. Luckily my husband opened the door after it shattered, but the crash & aftermath has been quite the mess. We're still finding glass in the tracks & it's in our flower beds. But the landscaper wouldn't replace the whole door- just the glass. He was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey & is just now moving back into his home. I unfortunately had to touch up the door paint, where shards of glass chipped into it.
Here is the new plexi door.
Since we didn't replace- I painted the rusted/not so pretty stuff with Art Minds outdoor paint, in black.
The door handle was originally brass & horribly corroded. The air quality is terrible here- chemical plants & coastal air. That mix left this thing disgusting. I was ashamed to post a before pic. So here is it after a long time of meticulous sanding & painting with Art Minds outdoor paint, in black. You can see Oreo had to help out.
Here is our color for the main part of the door.
Waverly acrylic paint in sky.
I'm using 3 different stencils- these 2 for accents, since the main one didn't cover the entire door perfectly.
This Waverly stencil is the main one.
Here is how it looks from the inside- top half of the door.
Here is the bottom half, from inside.
Here is the finished product- much better! now I have some privacy, some light blocked out, but we can still see through just fine. I had everything on hand- so it didn't cost me a dime!
