New chicken coop door

I inherited a few chickens when I bought my house and for the past 4 years, I've been dealing with a warped coop door. The door was now so warped it was getting hard for me to close. I thought a screen door with the screen taken out and replaced by chicken wire would be perfect.

Here is the coop before. It's quite large and well over 6 feet tall.

I found a screen door at a home salvage store and snagged it for $20. I took out the screen, replaced it with chicken wire (you can staple this on with a hand held stapler) and painted it the same color as my front door, Spicy Hue by Sherwin Williams.

I love it!!! It adds a little pop of color and it's great having a door that actually opens and closes with ease. Now, I think I need to paint the rest of the coop the color of my house!
