Easy Door Stop

Dear Chicago House,

There are a couple of your doors that just will not stay open and swing shut, I think they may be a little warped or unbalance… or something a carpenter could easily describe.

So you needed a couple of door stops and those yucky wedges you can buy were not “floating my boat”.Time to DIY something simple yet elegant.

Take one glass bottle I have had for donkeys years, fill it with those lovely glass beads you can get from Micheal’s and voila, a door that doesn’t close unless I want it to.

Isn’t it pretty!

I would also like to have a go at making a really big rope ball to use as a door stop.

Love from
