Repurposed vintage screen door

$10
3 Hours
Easy

I took a screen door saved from my great grandfather's old house and reused it as a laundry/mud room door.
I pulled all the old nails out and took off the old screen, then sanded and painted the door grey -- Walmart Colorplace Grand Smoky Mountain. I then sanded lightly and rubbed on a walnut water-based stain to really make it look like the old wood. Dark wax would also work.
I then cut square

    Love what you have done with your old screen door! This is what I did with the one I rescued off the roadside... I painted it green and hung it on the back of my pool shack as "decor. "
