Too many eager little hands trying to break through the child-proof lock. One of them had to lose.
Too bad it was the pantry door.
So, a quick fix was in order. I had some left over canvas and sewed a simple panel and used a spring-tension rod to do this...
It works for now!
muster enough energy figure out if glue will work (and how?) or if we need to buy a new door!
(Just a little update--my husband saw the curtain and asked, "is that a hint?" I said, "no, it's more of a solution." But he took it as a hint and fixed the door that day. No more curtain! Heh.)
