While you're here, I've been meaning to share with you the DIY Dutch Door my husband
I was there for love & support, to hold this or that, and of course to snap photos throughout the entire process.
I think he was more excited to use his new Ryobi toys than I was to get a dutch door for our daughter's room!
After hours of labor, he went the extra mile and added a lock onto the door, which was genius! I'm sure our babygirl will appreciate it as she gets older. Also, I plan on adding a pull handle eventually, too.
This is a project we've been wanting to do for a while, so I'm stoked it's finally finished. For the most part.....
In the meantime, head on over to Unexpected Elegance to see her dutch door. Her post is where we found our Pinspiration! Her tutorial was very easy to follow, and budget friendly, too, as she provided us with tips on how to add the extra hinges without spending a lot of money for the tools.
As a Mama, I like to check on my daughter every now and then during naptime and/or bedtime, but sometimes getting her to stay in her bed during sleepytime is a hassle. She's mastered the baby gates and honestly, I'm glad because they're a pain in the butt, so she would just open it up and run out of the room! I have never closed her bedroom door since she was born and wasn't about to start, so this dutch door has been the best thing since sliced
We are so pleased with this transformation!
