Felt Protector Pads To The Rescue, Again

We have written previously about what to us was a unique use we made of felt protector pads on the wooden gate  in our garage.

Well, here we are again.

This time it is with our family room. As we discussed previously in our article about the makeover of our family room, we had installed hardwood flooring.

However, having the family room, adjoining eating area and kitchen all with the same hardwood flooring can cause sound to travel. I am usually the last family member to go to bed at night.

When I am not writing about our renovation experiences here on DHRT, I tend to watch comedies or action movies, both of which can be loud. Well, with hardwood floors the sound tends to travel. The best floors are vinyl floors.

So, recently we purchased a 6 foot by 10 foot rug for the family room as shown in the picture below.

Aesthetically, this looks very nice as it matches the colour of the painted brick fireplace and is complementary to the room’s overall colour scheme. One issue. Look at a closeup of the above picture created below, focusing on the end table.

Do you see it? Only one of the end table’s four legs is actually on top of the rug.

The other three are on the hardwood flooring. Of course, this now causes the top of the  end table to be uneven or ’tipsy’.  icon smile Felt Protector Pads To The Rescue, Again

So, Cath suggested “Why don’t you just put another one or two of the felt protector pads underneath the three legs that are not on the rug”.

What a great idea! It is a very simple solution. I would never have thought of it.

By placing the felt protector pads underneath the three other table legs (on top of the existing felt protector pads that are already there) it levels the table nicely.

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best. I like simple solutions.
