Decorative door stop

I don't know about you,but I like to keep my bedroom door open at night so I can hear the kiddos. The only problem is that my door will not stay closed. I usually put a sock or some article of clothing in front of it to keep the darn thing from closing. Well I decided it was time for a change!  The people that owned our house before us left all these random pieces of wood around. Have a look

This was still better than the clothes on the floor. Not by much. So I got some fabric and hot glue out and dolled it up a bit. I also used some decorative nails to keep it in place.

Kind of a funny project,but it was really fun,I want to do one in all the rooms. And it was stuff I already had!


  1. Another fun project, Connie. I like to have my bedroom door open as well to hear my boys at night. It's a mom thing. :) Thanks for linking up!

  2. Cute idea! I have the same problem with my oldest's door. I'm using her piggy bank to keep it open, but this is an idea I might need to try. Thanks!

  3. What a great idea! And it turned out super cute; bonus! :)

  4. Thank you!
    I thought you might like to know about this linky party. It's especially for new blogs! (Sassy Sites is one of my favorites!)

  5. Great idea and free is the best way to go! When I was growing up my mom used a rock to hold her door open :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.
