Step 1 – Remove any hardware that your screen door may have. I also ended up removing the fly screen as well because it was only on half the door when I found it.

Step 2 – Pour a cap full of TSP into some warm water and give the whole screen door frame a clean. TSP is perfect for removing all of the grime and grunge that collects over furniture over time. It doesn’t need to be rinsed so once dry your all ready to get painting.

Step 3 – Take your beeswax stick and rub over your door where you would like the wood to come through. Then grab your brush and give the entire door back and front 2 coats of Coal Black. Letting each coat dry in between. Take your sander and distress to your liking. Then it’s time for waxing to seal in all of your hard work. In the above photo, you can see on the left where I have waxed and on the right where I haven’t. Sure does make the coal black pop!

We have a really bear wall in our hallway which was a perfect spot for our screen! Using some topiary trees from Early Settlers and some Farmhouse Frames that I made a few years back, they have given our hallway a not too cluttered farmhouse look that we love.
Happy Painting!

  1. Sam, Your door turned out great! I painted an old vintage screen door a few years back, with the screen all intact and in good condition. I haven’t a clue why I never took photos of me painting or even about this door. It’s a feature in my art/craft room that I hang artwork onto the screen.
