This was originally a solid core door to my work room, but when I closed it to keep my dogs out when working on a project, I felt totally closed in. Now I can keep them out when I need to, but it still feels very open!
 I painted a floral design on the ledge on the bottom half.
Here is a close up.

One solid core door, a table saw, some hardware and a little paint and I have the dutch door I've ALWAYS wanted! This is probably one of my favorite elements in my work room!

p.s. Wooden shoe rather have a Dutch door? (Just a little humor from the land of tulips and windmills!) Posted: 8:36 pm on October 13th

Your studio door is WONDEFUL. What a super idea to keep your dogs out of your studio. The painted border is lovely. VERY talented my friend!!! gailmarie Posted: 9:50 am on October 13th
