$5 Door

I did it again! I found something useful at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for a steal. I feel in love with this old black screen door, in very good shape too, for only $5. My mind was in high gear trying to figure out how I could use it? This is what I ended up with, a new entrance to my craft room, one that will allow the dog to see out when he's rushed in there when company comes or to keep the grandkids out when I have a project laid out. And it matches the decor in the living room that it faces. I couldn't believe my luck! Hubby asked if I was going to paint it, "No way" I said, that's the prim look I'm after! He's getting used to my ideas and even helped me hang it. All it needs now is a plaque that reads "Studio Sue" or something along that line, you get the picture! Stay tuned, photos of my bedroom coming to a screen near you, tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, as I am!


  1. Love your door!! I am looking for one to go from my laundry room to the garage that I am converting to my studio....
    Great find!!!

  2. Love the screen door! What a great find!!

  3. You are just too cool with all the decorating ideas you have in your head. I would never have thought to put a screen door INSIDE the house. Maybe I need to do that on the only window that opens in the front of the apartment that I can't get a screen for because it's too tall and opens out. I'm going to have to go looking. Thanks for always coming up with great tips. Good Job Sue! xxoo

  4. loving it..I am wanting to paint ours black now..they are red and ratty looking..I think black would make the red doors pop...:)thanks for the idea...

  5. What a great idea! Thank you for telling us about the HFH ReStores. I just found our nearest one with a Google search, it's about an hour's drive from home, and plan to visit it soon. I may find some great bargains thanks to you.

  6. Howdy Sue,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Your blog is too cute! You and I have a lot in common it looks like.
    Can you believe it, I only live an hours drive from Henrybellas. Brin is around the same age as my daughter and they have so much in common too. I can't wait to be able to head back over that way again in hopes that we find her place open. I teach all week, so not much time to get there. Maybe this summer. Hope you stop back by again soon. I'll be back!

  7. What a great find!! I love it.


  8. Great door - and how lucky that it fit so well. That's a very clever idea.

  9. What a great idea! Sure wish we had Habitat for Humanity around here! Lucky you!


  10. I love old screen doors. Yours looks perfect.
    My hubby brought one home one day from a spring clean up---a freebie!!! We hung it on the outside wall of our summer kitchen and planted a clematis in front of it. That vine grows all over it and blooms so pretty.
    I just love thrifty finds!

  11. What a great idea. I am looking for one that I can put on my back porch for the summer. I am going to have to check out our HFH store for some great finds.

  12. What a great deal and I love the look! I wish my hubby were as open to my ideas! Lucky you!

  13. What a lucky find! It looks great in its new home! And I am looking forward to seeing your bedorom pics!
    Hope you have a great week!

  14. WOW! I love the screen door and boy the price was right!!! It looks great where you have it! Recycling is so much fun!
    Hope your day is great!

  15. Great Idea. I would never have seen that door and thought of that! Very creative mind!

    I love your use of the spare windows for wall decorations.
