Fixin' it Good

While examining the screen door this weekend in the midst of a repair, a second generation repair, I had the thought that "this time I'm gonna fix it good. " The trim had come loose and I was out of the tiny nail brads that I had used the first time around.

I decided to improvise and simply clipped the ends off of the smallest finish nails we had rather than run to the store for more of the tiny brad nails that hadn't worked the first time.

The new custom made, somewhat stouter four nails on the right did the trick. I pounded them into the existing holes where the brads had failed to hold and the trim appears to be quite secure... for now.
