Inspiration Friday: Pantry Screen Doors

Sugarpie Farmhouse
I really appreciate how one photo can inspire a whole room design or how a single accent piece can transform a space. Like a screen door on a pantry... it really changes the look of a kitchen. And while it helps to separate spaces (between kitchen and storage), it changes the entire perspective and draws the eye to the mystery beyond the screen.

So despite the fact that it's autumn and cooler temperatures prevail, I'm on the hunt for that special screen door, not for the porch, but for my pantry door.

This is one of my favorites... it's from the Lettered Cottage and they have a tutorial on switching it out...

At the moment, I actually have a pocket door on my pantry opening. Perhaps something like this? Maybe we'd actually close it more if it looked this good. However, I have found that pocket doors, handy as they may be, stay open almost 99% of the time due to the traffic coming in and out.

Here's a solution for a mini-pantry; really just an alcove converted.

Okay... let's get down to brass tacks. Here's what I'm REALLY looking for... I think. When I see these, memories flood over me and I swoon a bit...

I'd settle for anything in reasonable condition (willing to do a little work on it) in the right size (or could be trimmed down to 32.5" x 79"), preferably in black or a neutral color (but negotiable), for the right price. I thought I found it last weekend, but the owner of the antique shop was using it for display and wouldn't part with it. {Sigh... I wouldn't have either!}. Besides being EXACTLY the right dimensions, I adored the hardware cloth in the top portion. A little work down below and it would have been perfect!

Do you know how scarce antiques are in California?

Perhaps you have one in storage?
