Use a pool noodle to create a car door bumper.

If you park in a garage, you have to be careful every time you swing open a door, because you could damage not only the wall, but more importantly, you could damage the edge of your door.

Follow these instructions to make a bumper out of a simple pool noodle.

  • Position the noodle on the wall, keeping it level, so the front and back doors are protected when opened.
  • Attach the noodle to the wall using 1-5/8-inch drywall screws.
