When I came home from our Thanksgiving trip, I saw this.
I don't have a before picture of the storm door closed. So you can't get the full "yuck" effect. But trust me. It was yuck.
Instead, I have other before and after pictures you've seen in my previous post on the mudroom. Here are some comparisons:
|Before: From the inside|
Yuck: bar in the middle of the glass, always visible screen, big bottom panel...
|After: let there be light|
...now there's so much light streaming in, the flash on my camera wouldn't go off. The slide away screen is magic and the lower panel is gone.
|Before: from the outside|
Yuck: hate that handle and oh, where's the closer? It fell off at the peak of subcontractor traffic. Nice.
|After: I can use my foot?|
Heavy duty handle (that has it's own lock) and a handsfree closer.
Can I be a little bit in love with a door?
Yes, that is unpainted trim at the top...which will probably stay that way until Spring when the temps go back up. But that's ok. I'm still in love.
