Dear AT,

I have this fireplace and I need help trying to baby proof it.

I really don't want to get those gates because they don't look too cool.

I realize child safety is important so don't get me wrong, it is on the top of my list.

The fireplace no longer works so I wanted to place something either in it or in front of it.

At the same time, I don't want any gaps this way my baby can't fall into it or hurt himself in any way...

I've already tried getting a toy chest but ended up coming up short.

I'm really tight on space so whatever I could do to maximize what I have would be great.

I am hoping that maybe one of the readers can give me suggestions.

Thanks! Cynthia
