DIY stylish and practical way to baby proof your fireplace. Is there a baby or toddler in the house? When the fireplace is not in use, sometimes it's best to put up a stylish barrier in front of the fireplace so that nasty little accident don't happen!
I wanted a stylish yet practical way to babyproof my fireplace hearth. I measured the hearth then built a frame out of pine to slide over it then used rubber pipe insulation to cushion the corners. I then wrapped it in polyfoam batting to add more cushio
Need to install a dog gate, but don't want to drill into the wooden stair banisters? Cut a couple of to the height of the banister, paint,and secure with heavy zip ties. Then just add the dog gate hardware to the new piece of wood
Cheap babyproofing! This is plumbing insulation from Home Depot. Less than $2 for 6 feet of it! It's slit down the middle and has sticky tape on the inside of each slit. You can get it in different sizes. I got one that was bigger around to put on our fireplace ledge (you can kind-of see in the background)
