Need to install a baby gate, but don't want to drill into the wooden stair banisters??? Cut a couple of 2x4's to the height of the banister, paint,and secure with heavy zip ties. Then just add the baby gate hardware to the new piece of wood........D.
Fireplace Baby Proofing- Here is my quick solution to keep my newly crawling baby out of the fireplace! I cut and taped foam board to fit the size of the opening. I hot glued magnets to the edges of the foam board to hold it in place since our gas log insert is magnetic. I wrapped the foam board in fabric and hot glued the edge of the fabric to the back of the foam board. It really was a simple fix!
