Ideas for childproofing widely-spaced deck rails?
Hi folks! I just moved into my new house, which has a nice wood deck on the second story. It does have one problem - the balusters (2" wide slats) are spaced wide enough for my 2-year-old to slip through. I don't want to put up safety mesh - I'm looking for a more permanent solution, and something a little more creative than just nailing more slats between the existing ones. I'd also like to keep an open feel to the railing because there's a nice view to the garden below. Any ideas for a fix?
This deck is also in serious need of stripping/sealing, and I have questions about that in a separate post.
Thanks for your help!
