So-- we have kids and a cat and somehow the screen door got a hole in it and the kids and cat have been able to pass freely through. Duct tape be damned, that screen door is a good passageway. I cannot tell you how long "fix the screen door" has been on our "Honey Do" list.
But FLIES no more!
Ok, maybe not like magic. I bought a kit after measuring the screen door. I read a blog post on The Art of Doing Stuff about how to replace a screen. I was inspired. I found a kit for $14 and it arrived.
I set it aside to do it, and found my husband like this (see above photo) this morning.
And he did it! There is no longer a hole in the screen. He even banned the kids from leaning on it and told them to close it every time after they opened it.
I asked him about it, and he said, "It's easy when you have the right tools."
p.s. I am saving the old screen for the greenhouse-- so I can leave the door open for ventilation but not have the chickens come in-- so stay tuned.
