Farmhouse Inspired Screen Door Makeover

Almost the minute we moved into our home 2 years ago, the screen door on our front door got some "love" from one of our boys.  Fast forward a few months (now the youngest was walking) and it quickly was getting double the "love" from both of our boys.  Before we knew it, the screen door was breaking as fast as we could fix it.  Here we are 2 years later, with an ever-growing upkeep list with our home, and we needed to address it. To buy a new and well-made one was going to have a hefty price tag, so we began to think.  And by we, this time, the true credit as goes to my hubs.  He said, "what if we made the bottom part solid?" Light bulbs went off in my head.  I remembered countless farmhouse style front doors that had this "X" on the bottom half, and I knew I just needed to find a picture of a screen door so my sweet Daddio could help me figure it out.

So, here is the picture I sent him.  My poor dad probably loathes Pinterest between my mom, sister and me! I wanted the bottom, however, to be completely solid, and thus boy-proof.

Here is the screen before. The picture was taken after one of several repairs to the screen where it had been pushed out by tiny humans.

And here is the after.  Whatcha think?! Not bad for a less than $15 fix!

Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing and safe Labor Day Weekend!
