    Hey, that's a pretty cool idea!! And, it looks good too!

    To all, thank you. Now, I feel better, not weird. I have to give credit due to DH - he is the best.

    Though I remember furry friends climbing screens when on the opposite side to me.

    Glad to know I am not the only one with a screen door on the sewing room :) I needed to keep the cats out, but not close the door. In the summer we put in 2 a/c units, one at each end of the house....the dining room window and the sewing room window to cool off the entire upstairs of my house. Sooooo DH said a screen door was my answer :) and he was so right. I thought it was going to look bad, but I was pleasantly surprised, it looks fine and the boys are out of my stuff :)

    My aunt put a screen door between her kitchen and living room when she had 3 kids under 3 years old.

    Terrific idea. Dh and I are thinking of doing it on a couple of our inside doors, too. Tired of the cats in those rooms.

    My husband is not going to be happy with you. I want him to put a screen door on my sewing room door.

    We had neighbors many years ago who did the same thing for their 3 yr son's room. He didn't require much sleep and this way he could play safely while Mom napped. He started climbing over the baby gate at age 2 and she was going crazy from lack of sleep.

    I had that years ago for a night wandering toddler! I had to lock her in. She would wander the house and sometimes the yard...Lord knows where she'd go next! No matter what I locked she could get out. Houdini! But I could hook and eye the screen door on the outside where she couln't get to it! The screen kept her in and gave me absolute sight and sound access to the little monster. I could lock it but have no trouble getting in in an emergency. Heck you could go through the screen if you had to. Thank God, she and I survived that period. She is now in lher forties and I don't care where she goes! It's her hubby's problem now.

    Makes perfect sense to me, and I have always wanted to do that for the same reason. One of my cats is very demanding when she wants attention and won't take "no" for an answer.
