I’ve always used whatever’s been lying on the floor to prop open the doors in our house, anything from piggy banks to hatboxes, book ends to shoes…and occasionally the dog. Whatever works, right? Especially now that spring is here (finally!) and we’ll be leaving the windows open, propping open the doors has become quite necessary–unless we want to be treated to a chorus of slams every time the breeze blows.
Just think about all those pretty doors you’ll have…
A piece of wood, about 1.5″ wide & 6.5″ long.
White paint (preferably high gloss)
Minwax Polycrylic (again, gloss)
Whatever kind of saw you have on hand
Leather strip, about .5″ wide & 5″ long
#6 brass finishing washer

Sander or sandpaper
Paintbrushes, pencil, ruler
