This is a screen door I made in 2006 replaces the original storm door. Made from reclaimed pine. Finished with clear spar varnish and milk paint.

Oh my gosh. I love this door. First of all, what is milk paint? I need to make a new screen door too. We’re doing alot of changes to our old cabin, and the door isnt a normal size, so I had to make my last screen door. Too rotten to take a picture of now, but I did like it. I would rather have something like this. I’m not sure what spar varnish is either. Could you tell me anything about this? I want my next door to last longer than 5 years or so. Thanks for any advise.
