Welcome Screen Door

I bought this screen door this summer because of its red color and I knew it'd be awesome for Christmas.  It was pretty banged up and dirty.  I repaired and washed it as best I could and the red color just popped.  Not obnoxious red like you would think, but very bright and festive.  But it was still clearly on the rough side so I decided to keep it that way.

I added old, mismatched, even broken hooks for hanging coats, scarves, purses.  Then an old handle at the top for hanging a mirror (the rusty chain is acutally from the door's hardware).  Then I made an oval wreath for the holiday season to trim the mirror.  I think it would be a fun way to welcome guests for the holidays. 

CHRISTMAS was my inspiration for THIS project -- but don't worry I've got more inspired projects on the way!

I want that door also!!! I've wanted an old screen door to hang vintage ornaments. This would be perfect with the color. I live the mirror on it also. Keep up your good work. Posted: 4:53 pm on December 6th
