      Slide out baby doors. This is the greatest idea EVER. No more awful looking baby gates! Best use of pocket doors

      I've been thinking of dutch door from mudroom to kitchen. Couldn't do full pocket door because of placement of electrical panel. Could I do a Half-pocket door? {slide out dog doors... this is the greatest idea EVER... no more awful looking baby gates!!! But this could be used for kids not just dogs}

    What an awesome idea in a little room! Stick a mattress in between and you've saved a whoooooole bunch of waste space. *put some pillows on that top shelf, and you've got a reading nook too! the possibilities are endless!! I would put electrical outlets in the shelf at the foot of the bed for clock etc and one right above the top shelves on either sides for light etc

    Old iron gates instead of dog gates! Genius!

    Doggy door - brilliant! Easy to close when you don't want them going out, and it's perfectly hidden!

    Doors on the stairs to keep the noise down, heat down, and/or pets on one side or the other.

    Brilliant idea for people that love pocket doors and don't want to rip out walls to make them!

    Pet bowls. Much nicer than bowls on the floor. They are removable for washing. They fold up when not in use and can be painted to match your wall color.

    baby gate...door cut in half with traditional latch lock. $25 gate and so much cuter! Clever

    Designers say painting interior doors black adds a richness, a warmth to your home despite color scheme. Here you can see the difference. I really need to finish this project! So far I've painted one, only 9 more to go. Oh, and four bi-fold closet doors. Need more hours in the day!

    Built-in dog house with doggie door to outside- would be awesome in a mud room

    WHAT?? The door to an underground storm shelter/panic room/secret hide-out in the kitchen island! Best secret passage ever!! Definitely a dream home feature. (would also be good if someone broke into your house and you had to hide somewhere)

    great gift for aunts and cousins (maybe even a stocking stuffer!) — odds and ends tray from kate spade new york
