From Screen Door to Interior Door

closet in sunroom
Last year when we decided to close in the screened porch to make a sunroom, I knew I wanted a closet in the room.  There was about a four foot recessed area that didn’t get much use after we added the fireplace to the living room that would be perfect.

I got the inspiration from Pinterest to drop the top of the closet so I could display some vintage fans.

The screen porch had 3 doors that my husband made.  I put two in the antique booth to use as display and the other one is being used as the closet door.  It really wasn’t the door that I liked as much as the iron hardware!

Hunter found some original screen door hardware in the diary barn but we didn’t have enough for all 3 doors.  It’s been quite a few years but I think I found the corner brackets on eBay.  The know is from Hobby Lobby.

To keep from seeing the inside of the closet, which may be messy at times, I lined the inside with burlap.
using a screen door as a closet door
I did it the quick and easy way!  I pulled it tight and stapled it the frame covered the screen and hardware cloth.

I then trimmed it off very neatly!

I am so happy with my closet!  I love storage of any kind and the fact that I was able to keep a screen door makes it all the more special!
