    Default Well I think I am a genius if no one else does, lol

    Problem, we have Vegas's crate underneath the far end of our bar, it is in the living room with us. (Open concept) He loves his crate and goes in on his own. Well my walls were so scratched up with big black marks from him running and diving into his crate that it was chipping the walls away.

    We just got done doing wainscoting the whole kitchen with a nice chair-rail and Joe did under the bar as well, I had to think of something so it did not ding our new wainscoting or Joe wanted to move the crate to the back bedroom (NOT going to happen) Sooo on our millionth trip to Lowes I figured it out!!

    It is the foam tubes that are suppose to insulate-wrap water piping, $1.50 for a 6 foot tube, we bought two and some zip ties. Cut the tube open, wrap around the top, bottom and corners of the crate that touches the wall, zip tie and Wal-lah!!!!!! Now even if he runs full speed into his crate it has bumpers!!!!

    Sometimes I just have my moments! Had to share since I believe I am not the only one that has this problem.

    This is where Vegas's crate sits in our living room.

    The last picture is where I have the crate pulled out sideways so you could get a better view of how I did it.

    I don't have a problem with the crates, but if I did, that wouldn't work for me, my dogs would eat them. But great idea.

    Lol was thinking that might attract Miila. Our crate isn't he middle oft believing room and the only use it gets is as a backstop for Miila when she gets zombies. This is a fabulous idea tho Kelly! I never would have known this was a problem, or thought ofit. Your walls will be happy!
