You can cut off the door at the bottom. If you cut all the wooden insert off, peel the veneer off of the scrap and insert it into the space at the bottom of the door. Knock the paper spacers up out of the way, apply some wood glue to the filler strip, sllp it into place and clamp it for 30 minutes.

Hope this helps.
