An Open and Shut Project
With the finish applied, I found that putting the final touches on my custom screen door project went very smoothly. I used to paint houses to help pay my way through college, and I remember vividly how challenging it was to cut in around screen doors. Especially ones like my project with lots of panes of screen. So I really appreciated being able to tack in the screening and the moldings post-finish. It was really satisfying to get this door hung, although now that it's getting late in the fall I won't really get to make full use of it until next Spring. But I can at least rest assured this door will survive the New England winters a lot better than my old Home Depot door!
