Over the years friends have shuddered at the way we seemingly block doorways on a whim. Above is a photo of a blocked doorway that goes from our dining room to pantry-turned-craft space. There is typically a method to our madness....
We suspect that, in a former life, we were some kind of animal that craved cave dwelling because we feel uncomfortable if there is more than one point of entry into a space, needing instead to be cozied up in a den type environment. And in the case of our dining room blockage, there is another door that leads into the kitchen but it's true you can only access the pantry from going all the way around. This never bothers us.
We also blocked the doorway in order to create a low, continuous bank of photos on our bookshelves, which wouldn't work in any other configuration in the space. At least in any configuration that pleases us the way this one does.
So how about you?
