Shut the Front Door

I’ve had this spicy red color on my screen door for way too long.
(like…. 9 months)
I was ready for a change…

I only paid about $100 or so for this screen 5 years ago.  I cut the screen out and had a piece of glass made for it.  I like the wood and the four squares.  Since I didn’t pay a lot for it I feel like I can do whatever I want to it.
…like add chicken wire to the bottom half where my kids shot the lower glass with an air soft gun.
 Now I don’t notice the “ding” so much.
(good thing I don’t have some fancy & formal etched glass)
I also added some iron brackets to dress it up.
I framed out the house number with an old chippy frame.
 I moved the little #12 plaque to the door so it’s more visible from the road.
The green is Wethersfiled Moss by Benjamin Moore.
This door is casual and maybe a little unexpected on a tall colonial such as ours but I like that it brings the feel of our home a little more “down to earth”.
