Door Built for a Princess

Before we had Monkey we got a puppy, a beautiful Pomeranian puppy named General Maximus Decimus Merdius (yes Poppa named him) and he's called Maximus, well actually now he's called Mam Mam since that's what Monkey calls him.  He's not like any other dog I've ever come in contact with.  I swear he thinks he's human and turns his nose up to other dogs and gets disgusted with us when we treat him as such.
He's part of our family but let's face it, he's still a dog and because he's a dog, he's not allowed in the bedrooms so we keep the doors shut.  Well now that Monkey is older and capable of coming in and out of her room as she pleases, keeping her door closed restricts not only Mam Mam but Monkey as well.  So Poppa decided he'd build her a door to her room where she could come and go as she pleases but keep our beloved pup out. 

We went to Home Depot and bought MDF Board and cut it down to our measurements.  (Just measured from door frame end to the other and then meausred how tall we wanted it)  We also bought cabinet door hinges to install the door.

I then primed and painted, which in terms of trial and error I should have done this step before we hung the door but you get to learn from my mistakes. :)  After the paint dried I painted wooden letters that spell her name that I picked up at Hobby Lobby and just hot glued those bad boys right on there. 

Now she is happy to go in her room and play and not be bothered by Mam Mam.

I do believe she's happy with her door.

Some Linky Love
