Picture of Classy Screen Door Repair
First off, I'd just like to thank everyone who voted for this in the contest.  Looks like I WON!!! :D
I'm about as giddy as a schoolgirl here, so you can also be thankful that you don't have to see *that*.

Age-old story: Our back door screen ripped out thanks to the ever-gentle touch of kids and pets.

I was just going to replace the screen, but as it turns they didn't have the typical groove and spline but rather the screen was pinched against the door with a metal inner frame.  IMO, this is a stupid way to design the thing since the only thing really holding the screen fabric is a few screws.  One little push and *rip*.  Game over.

So, no doubt the best solution to this would have been to go down to Home Despot, buy a screen door kit for $25 bux, and slap it in. 

But where's the fun in that?

I decided to follow my current cedar fetish and make a victorian-esque screen door.  Not only will it help class the place up a bit, but  it will also hold the screen with a proper spline and also it will have wooden supports in the lower half to keep little hands and paws from pushing directly against said screen.
