Papa got this old original country farm house  screen door from one of the guys at work..Papa said hey wait what ya planning to do with that door, the guy said get rid of it,   He was going to throw it out or cut it up for scraps!  Well , Papa said no don't do that  I'll take it, my wife would love it. So goes the story of the old farm house screen door that nearly got thrown out or chopped up. Papa is refurbishing it and then will paint it, that's what he is doing right now   . You cant get these original heavy farm house screen doors any more  with the detail and the good sturdy wood not as good as this one, thanks Papa ya always know how to make Mama happy !

It's a grand old screen door, so much original detail, it will be a lovely and practical addition to the farmhouse.
He's a good egg, your Papa. :)

What a papa!!!! Love that door, and it will look great when done. Those doors are rare, and to think it was to go in the garbage! Great find!
