Q: Is there a way to use a similar idea to Carrie's rope-wrapped heating pipe for larger stuff? We have a six-month-old and an entire apartment full of giant steam radiators that get hot enough to burn. The cheapest metal covers start at $165 each, and the gorgeous wood solutions go up from there.

Does anybody have other ideas for childproofing that won't break the bank or create eyesores? (I've been through the Apartment Therapy archives and all over the internet, and have yet to find a solution!) Thank you.
