Chair Railing Idea
While Mom and I waited to see a surgeon for a follow-up visit, we noticed a nifty chair-railing. Whoever designed his waiting room had a great idea for an unobtrusive way to keep the chairs from marking up the wall. It wasn't the usual molding placed at chair height on the wall; it was a two x four inch board covered in matching floor carpet, wrapped like a gift box, placed just behind each grouping of chair legs (each group consisted of 2 to 3 chairs), and equal in length to each grouping. I don't know whether the boards were fastened to the floor or not as I didn't get a chance to investigate, but I can imagine that it would be easy to pick them up to vacumn under and be replaced along with the chairs.
