A Quick Doorstop Project

The main level in our new house has a small bathroom in the laundry area (yes!), which is super handy, but sometimes a bit wierd.  We like to leave the door at least half open so that you know the room is not occupied, but you also dont want the door flung wide open to see everything (let’s face it, even when clean, bathrooms just aren’t that appealing!).

So, to stop the door from flopping about annoyingly, I made a doorstop. Cost? Free!

I went out to the barn and grabbed an old brick, then cleaned it off.  I used some soft, thick, scrap fabric I had on hand, and wrapped the brick like a present.  I secured the fabric with a glue gun.  Last, I added ribbon trim, also scrap, to the seam for a finished look… Viola!

 

 

Nothing fancy, or groundbreaking, but it was cheap and does the job.  I don’t think it looks half bad either, if I do say so myself! And, you get a sneak peak of the bathroom/laundry room! Just a note, if you are thinking about a project like this, it works great! I love how this thick, soft fabric slides easily and quietly on the tile floor with a scoot of the foot.  I recommend!

    I use a brick paver as a doorstop for my front door, but now I feel like I should probably wrap it 🙂
