Screen door on a battle ship.

File under projects I did and never blogged about: Our busted screen door to the porch.

I installed it and tweaked the frame so it fit better. I also updated all the hardware. Remarkably easy. Carrie even threw a fresh coat on the outside of the porch with the leftover paint right before we trellised the oops roses.
