I purchased the screen door and built the frame around it. I made it to sit on top of the porch, so I could slide it out, in case I changed my mind. I left the back open to the rear of the house for access.
I started with a piece of craft wood for my floor and cut it to fit the porch. I used square wood dowels and a porch post to form the frame and ready-made porch railing at the bottom. I added unfinished wood flooring to the bottom of the screen porch in the inside.
I recycled a real life window screen, I cut down to size and used screen it to cover the mini screen porch. (The screen is left unattached until I paint the porch.) I used porch posts, square dowels and thin unfinished wood picture frames for decorative trim on the rest of the lower porch.
I also finally got a chance to use the porch swing I've had for years, I used mini hooks and screwed it into a beam.
P.S. Can someone tell me why I can no longer make comments or replies to my blog or anyone else's under my google account??????
Or see the pins made from my blog in Stats???????
