Summer Screen Door

I'm sharing another post from our Smoky Mt.
Cabbage (condo), part cabin, part cottage.
What's a summer cabbage without a screen
 door? A screen door is a summer
  must-have. It lets in more light and 
the summer breeze. Ah! and that summer 
sound of a screen door slamming shut!
This closed door does NOT say summer!
We found a wood screen door for under $20 
at Home Depot. Larry stained it with leftover 
trim stain he got from the maintenance crew. 
He added the hardware and  installed it in 
no time. I love it!
Even the doggies love looking out now.
It looks very nice at the front deck.
And it looks very nice from the inside too.
Let there be light!

  1. So cute! Nothing like the slam of screen door! Brings back memories!

  2. I truly love it! I made my husband put one on our first house- I wanted that exact sound- the door slamming! So reminiscent of summer days by the lake.. Flip flops and sand!

  3. I love a screen door, it reminds me of my childhood in Indiana. I can't have one like yours though because my two Jack Russell terrors would bust through the bottom of it if they saw a critter outside. Rascals. I love how you call your place "the cabbage". My family and I try and go to Gatlinburg at least once every two years. It's so beautiful there! Would love to see more pics of your cabbage!

  4. I love your screen door! Now you can enjoy the light and the fresh mountain air!

  5. I love screen doors, I love having cross-ventilation. xo

  6. Oh I love it, it is perfect. Light and cool breezes. Thanks tons for linkin to Inspire Me.

  7. Hi Rita May! There is absolutely nothing better than a slamming screen door. I have two on my porch and I love them. Your cabbage is a delight!

  8. Oh, I love your screen door! Beautiful!
