Screen door inserts with herons, flamingos, and more — 2 places to find them

vintage screen door insert refinishedRemember Gabe and Amanda, who found a vintage blue heron screen door insert in sad shape on a house in their area, inquired about purchasing it from the owner and ultimately got it for free? Not everyone can be this lucky, but if you love the look of vintage style screen doors and want an easier solution, you’re in luck.

Updated 2021: I know of two manufacturers for this style of retro insert, with a variety of styles, including some that are close to Amanda and Gabe’s vintage blue heron.

1. PCA Products: Complete aluminum screen doors with insert

PCA Products shows a variety of insert designs. Pam sees other options — including a flamingo — on one of their retailer’s site. 

The door/design can be oriented for either right- or left-hinge hanging.

The site says, “Every piece of our art is truly individually handcrafted. Each art piece, tree topper and screen door grille is cut, shaped, finished and/or powder coated (if applicable) by us, in our shop.”

There are a variety of styles.

Above: Ooooh, we couldn’t resist showing this gorgeous vintage screen door insert — adorned with a swirly tailed peacock. The door belonged to reader Cynnamon’s grandparents. She saved it, and now uses it at wall art — beautifully! Thanks, Cynnamon, for posting this on our Facebook page, and for giving us permission to archive it here.

      Hi Nancy, I don’t sell anything — I write about companies that do. Contact the companies profiled in the story — look for the hotlinks to their websites in BLUE, or search them online.
