Buy a new screen door? Psh, I think not! Instead, here's a Diy Pallet Screen Door for about a third of the price of a cheap aluminum one. Our grandmother needed a new screen door, and of course, she's on a budget. We thought we'd save her some money and do a good deed. :)

I started by measuring the door opening and height. Next, I cut my vertical and horizontal boards to length. Since I do not have mortise and tenon equipment, I decided to notch my boards to sit atop each other and be level (a half-lap joint). After I notched all my boards appropriately, I squared all of my corners and applied Gorilla glue. I clamped all the corners together tightly. Next, I drilled 2 holes in all of my wooden joints and used more wood glue and wooden dowels to secure them even more. I trimmed the dowels flush with the boards.

First I sanded everything down fairly smooth. Then I stained and sealed the wood. When everything was dry, I added the screen and trimmed to fit. I used a staple gun and staples to secure the wire. For a little variation, I purchased some pre-made decorative molding. I trimmed it to length, mitered the corners, then stained and sealed it. Finally, I installed it with brad nails over the staple lines and end of the screen. Ta-da! We have a new screen door. Now to get some hinges and a latch mechanism of some kind and get this door installed!

We hope our grandmother is surprised and pleased. It's always nice to be able to recycle something and turn it into a project that will benefit others for years to come. We hope you all like our Diy Pallet Screen Door.
