After you have kids, you start realising that some of your furniture isn't kid-friendly. You don't need to put those tables with sharp edges into storage. A pool noodle protects the edges and makes your furniture kid-friendly.
We've covered how a pool noodle can protect kids from falling out of bed, but they also can protect kids from sharp table edges. Depending on the kid and the height of the table, you probably only need this for a year or so. It may not be pretty, but it gets the job done.
Of course, if you have kids, you might just want to buy safer furniture — but this tip also works if you don't have kids, and have family or friends who bring kids over once in a while. Take out the pool noodles and add some bumpers to the edge of a hazardous table. Check out the link for other tips to keep kids out of harm's way.
