Front Screen Door

As much I loved the front door and my welcome sign, I also love the breeze. But look at that YUCKY motion sensor light... PUKE!

I got this screen door for FREE from craigslist about 2 months ago before we closed on our house. It is solid wood and is routed for a screen perfectly. (Some wood screen doors need a screen frame instead of a rubber spline)

But for $3 for the screen and $4 for the spline tool and $3 for the actual spline, already had the paint
$10 and hurray.  I'll be moving the house numbers once I build a window planter box.
And Walmart has these exterior fixtures for (2) for $24, what a steal.  They only came in bronze so I painted it black. LOVE it!
