Oddly enough I found out that boards aren't REALLY what they are when I made my gate. That was the most frustrating thing I'd dealt with. LOL

A 2x4 is really 1 1/2 x 3 1/2. What size is the wall you want and where is the openings. I will draw it up for you.

I'm sooo exhausted!! My fingers hurt, my shoulders hurt, my knees hurt. On top of this project this evening I went and grouted my sister-in-laws bathroom. It's been a very busy weekend. I just wanna crawl in my tub and sit, but I can't take the computer in the bathtub. hahaha And I wanna veg out too. LOL
