Child Safety: Mesh Railing Protector

When my son was a baby, we had a sunken living room. It was only two steps down, but I worried about him falling through the wide-set railing that divided the dining room and the living room.

I found some soft mesh athletic fabric at the fabric store, which they were clearing out for one dollar per yard. I bought enough for the length of the railing and some matching fabric binding.

I bound all the edges and added enough ties all around, to tie it onto the top railing, to the bottom of each of the bars and down both the sides. Once I put this up, we could still see through, but I had no more worries about my baby falling through.

If it had been a greater distance to fall, such as an apartment balcony, it would be important to buy something much more sturdy then fabric mesh.

But for just a few steps, it worked great!
