A New (Old) Storm Door

Picked up this storm door a few weeks ago; it needs a lot of work, but is just the right size for our odd opening.

Photobucket

It came with a glass storm insert AND a screen insert (the red behind the glass). One pane of glass is broken, and all of the panes need re-glazed. Part of the door needs re-glued, and the exterior side needs repainted, as the red paint is peeling and chipping. We'll leave the interior side natural. I'm excited; this should be the perfect small scale practice for reglazing our windows.

What a great find - it's like you're living out my dreams! Although, wow, that makes my dreams sound pathetic.

This will look SO great! I love how you find, fix and reuse these older pieces so well.

Now you have me wondering what a wood storm door would have looked like on my house...ah well.

You lucky duck!!! All we have is a nasty aluminum one from the 60s!

Here is the info you asked for.

I got mine at the Benjamin Moore store in my area.

You're killin' me! I soooo want a storm door like that. I can't believe it came with the inserts - what an incredible find.

Great find! When reglazing the windows, I HIGHLY recommend getting the glazing compound in the tube, like caulk. Trust me, it makes the job less aggravating.
