Build your Own Wooden Doggy Gate
Because we only want to keep the fur boys from going up the stairs, there was no need for a latch. Hubby just attached a spring to one of the boards with two eye hooks. We humans only have to open the gate when we want to go up or down the stairs. As long as the fur boys don’t figure out how to pull the gate open, we’re safe!
We kept the length short so it would be easier to sweep and clean under the gate. And, at this height, the teens can’t go hopping over when they come down the stairs!
So yes, I’m a happy momma right now! You know, it would be great to remove the carpeting and redo the stairs, but I’m always worried about one of the kids falling and getting hurt on the bare wood. I’m probably the only one who thinks that way, so maybe one day I’ll get brave!
Thanks for taking a look at our newest DIY project. If you have your own project to show off, let me know so I can pop over for a visit!
