We’ll have a big sliding glass door in our dining area that will open up to our back patio. I specifically wanted this for our house because we entertain and cook outside a lot, and I can’t imagine having to walk from one end of the house to the other to get outside. So, in turn, we’ll have an indoor/outdoor eating area. When we are running in and out so much, and when it’s nice outside, I like to keep the door open, but that can be tricky with the bugs down here. I was excited to see the Bug Off screen door below, that’s just a little bit cooler than the sliding one that usually comes with a glass door kit. It’s removable (you can transfer it from one door to another as needed), and it automatically (magnetically!) closes behind you.

I found this screen door pattern (below) in a knitting book the other day. I love the DIY idea, and it’s really pretty, but I wonder about the practicality.
