From the blogger: "We have this lovely archway leading into the living room of our 1929 beach cottage. While it is charming, and totally not symmetrical, we wanted to add doors to contain some of the noise the kids make in there while playing their instruments. The only doors we could find were custom and way more than we wanted to spend. When we went to the hardware store, the doors on display did not have enough wood on top to cut an arch...but the bottom did. A little flip and we were in business."
