Instead of doing complex criss cross wood design, just do plain planks, stain light sandy colour and pain on a beach scene or incorporate a printed pic. Give to mom as doggie door (for keep dogs off stairs).
How to install a baby gate without drilling into the wooden stair banisters. Cut a couple of to the height of the banister, paint,and secure with heavy zip ties. Then just add the baby gate hardware to the new piece of wood.
I had just told Marc we should use zipties!-Mary Installing a Baby Gate Without Drilling Into the Banister . Just cut the zip ties when finished! I've been wondering how I was going to put a gate up with a banister like that!
Love the half door! Great for toddler room where you could keep the top open (hear when they wake) and bottom stays shut as a gate. I would love a mix of these and pocket doors in my dream house.trap the kids!
Our latest project was creating baby gates for the top and bottom of our stairs. I will preface this entire post by saying it was WAY more difficult than I had anticipated! Probably one of our most challenging DIY projects to date.
