Since my son turned 2, I have had messy kid's rooms. I am far from OCD, but the mess in the kid's room drove me crazy. Next to glitter it is the worse part about having kids. I have lamented on finding a way to keep the kids out of their closets. It finally dawned on me that somewhere on the internet someone has found a solution to this problem and so I searched on my favorite website of all time. Pinterest and found it in like two seconds. Deadbolt locks that are placed up top. Genius!!!! I was planning on doing a schmancy tutorial...my first I might add. I was so excited that I called one of my bestest girlfriends. Her reply was like "hmmmm.....why don't you try it like this and it would be soooo much easier then what you are attempting. I will send you a diagram" Ok so I was still stuck on the deadbolt idea until my husband came home and told me the fascia wouldn't allow us to use the deadbolt idea. So we attempted Kathy's idea and it has worked out marvelously. I would still like to do the tutorial, but seriously I would have to do a tutorial on how to drill a hole and how to stick a dowel through. It is that simple. So drumroll.....sticking a dowel through your sliding closet doors will change your life if you have kids 6 and under.
