Cabinet from old window screen

This is a cabinet I made using an old window screen for the door.  I used bead board for the back.  The original window screen was to be used horizontally but I saw it sitting vertically against a tree at the yard sale.  It looked like a small screen door to me.  The idea to do this cabinet was born. 

I've made altered paper bag albums using small found objects as well.  I was not able to upload photos because of the file size.  You can check them out at my blogspot http://thealteredpast.blogspot.com

Thanks for a great website!!  I LOVE all the creativity here!!
