Then one day as I was exploring blogland I found a much prettier solution to our problem, which was a screen door. Bob was skeptical, even when I showed him the cute photos. Alas, Bob just didn't think it was a good idea so we decided not to do it. Of course, once the decision was made to NOT do the door, I wanted it even more!
I thought I would put it on my Christmas list and see what might happen... and wala! I got a screen door! Bob bought a plain door and added the gingerbread trimming to it. It had to be painted and so he did that, too. He figured out how to hang it using the existing door plates and when he got the handle on, it was complete!
Here's a glance at our new screen door:

Bob loves the door, now and thinks it is a much nicer solution than the doggie gate!!
